Water availability is increasingly recognised as a material risk for many businesses. Water shortages have already shown to significantly impact the performance of companies operating in water-stressed regions. With competition for water expected to increase as a result of population growth, demographic trends and climate change, investors are increasingly seeking a better understanding of the strategic, operating and financial implications of water risk in their portfolios.
Bloomberg LP and the Natural Capital Declaration have developed a new Water Risk Valuation Tool and accompanying report which enables analysts to incorporate water risks into company valuations across copper and gold mining companies.
