Developer of the World’s Leading Water Tools for Business

Secure water resources and the ability to discharge have emerged as critical issues affecting economic activity, development, and business around the world. CH2M HILL has worked with global business organizations and companies to develop the world’s leading water tools that help individual companies across sectors identify their most significant water-related risks both globally and locally and the steps they should take to cost-effectively manage risk, report water performance and capitalize on opportunities. These tools are available free in the public domain along with supporting documentation to help companies use the tools and take action from outcomes.

The Global Water Tool

Developed in conjunction with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, the Global Water Tool assists companies in mapping their water use and assess risks relative to their global operations and supply chains. The Global Water Tool now includes sector customizations for power utilities and the oil and gas industry.
