WBCSD launches India Water Tool to support effective water resource management

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) launched today the India Water Tool to help companies better assess their water risks and manage their water use more efficiently in India. The tool is the first national customization of the WBCSD’s widely acclaimed Global Water Tool launched in 2007.

The India Water Tool is a free IT-based resource integrating groundwater data from across India. Any company operating in the country can use the tool to input its location and water-use data, and it will automatically generate maps and charts displaying which of the company’s operations face the biggest groundwater availability and quality risks. The software was developed by technology partner, Infosys.

The tool is not tailored to any specific sector but can help small and large companies across Indian industry to understand their water priorities and inform their water management decisions. This is crucial first step for any business striving to better its water use and should be followed by a detailed assessment of water use and stewardship options at plant level.
