Who made the water security ‘A list’?

Water tap stopFord and Colgate Palmolive are among companies with the best practices on water security, campaigners say.

CPD, a non-profit group, has published the names of eight companies achieving an A rating for their actions to manage water resources in a sustainable way.

Over 400 companies operating in the most water-dependent or vulnerable industry sectors have been evaluated on their disclosed water management practices by CDP and environmental business, South Pole Group.

However, the report found that over half (53%) of companies are failing to conduct a comprehensive risk assessment, which CDP regards as a basic step for companies seeking to ensure business resilience against

water issues. Industries most exposed to water risk are consumer staples (82%) and utilities (75%).

The full list of eight companies on the CDP Water A List in 2015 are:
  • Asahi Group Holdings, Ltd (Japan)
  • Colgate Palmolive, (US)
  • Ford Motor Company, (US)
  • Harmony Gold Mining Co.Ltd, (South Africa)
  • Kumba Iron Ore, (South Africa)
  • Metsä Board, (Finland)
  • Rohm Co., Ltd, (Japan)
  • Toyota Motor Corporation, (Japan)
