Department Water Risk

Ressort Water Risk

What's the point?

The VNU took up the subject of the Water Footprint in 2013 and supplemented the focus on Water Risk and Water Stewardship. Later (in May 2016), the Group decided to rename the department "Water Risk" to cover the full range of discussions.

Target group

In the first meeting in September 2013 around 30 representatives from authorities, companies and universities as well as environmental verifiers, consultants, certifiers and other interested parties attended. Since then, the group has met with an average of 9 - 15 participants at different hosts every 5-6 months.

Members of the VNU participate free of charge in the work meetings. Interested parties can get to know the subject and the network once free of charge. Subsequently we charge a fee of 50 EUR (net) per meeting.
