8th Annual Canadian Water Summit

Water is an undervalued resource, and so the incentive for large water users to monitor, conserve, recycle, and manage discharge beyond regulation requirements is not always obvious. However, water-related risks due to climate change, social license to operate, competing users, and the desire to meet sustainability objectives have led some companies to completely transform their relationship with water.
