Firm Updates Global Water Tool

CH2M HILL on April 1 announced the latest version of the Global Water Tool – an online resource to help companies calculate water footprints, determine efficiencies, and minimize external risks – is now available at www.wbcsd.org/web/watertool.htm.

The Global Water Tool was created by the firm and an advisory board of 22 members of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, a Geneva-based organization of 200 global companies representing 30 countries and 20 industrial sectors. Driving the development at CH2M HILL were Jan Dell, vice president; Partha Bora, project manager; and Dan Huber, information solutions.

The Global Water Tool was launched in August 2007 and has now been updated with the latest water datasets. Since its launch, the tool has been employed by more than 200 companies and has become the global standard for measuring internal water use and identifying external risks, the company said.

“Business leaders and policy makers recognize that the intersection of water, energy, and climate change will have significant impacts on global businesses and communities,” said Dell, Energy and Chemicals vice president.
