Monetizing Water Related Risks in the Supply Chain

Charles Frost

The Water Risk Monetizer (www.WaterRiskMonetizer.com) provides actionable information to help businesses assess water related business risk in their entire value chain- from suppliers through operations to customers’ locations. WRM is an easy-to-use financial modeling tool that helps help businesses assess water-related risks in financial terms based on readily available information about water use, water costs, revenue and production projections at individual facility and enterprise levels.

The publicly available, first-of-its-kind tool was developed by Ecolab and Trucost, who have subsequently partnered with Microsoft, to help businesses understand the full value of water to their operations and assess revenue at risk based on current and projected water scarcity. By quantifying water-related risks in financial terms, the tool bridges the gap between water availability and the water risks that affect businesses around the world.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Assess water scarcity risks at site and/or enterprise level
  • Understand the full value of water to a business
  • Calculate potential revenue at risk
  • Quantify water-related risks in financial terms that make business sense
