Thomas Schumann Water Risk Index®
NextGen – Global Institutional Grade Index Family
Nearly a third of the world is subject to water stress, a burgeoning crisis that only promises to get worse as climate change exacerbates droughts and flooding, and as population growth fuels ever-growing water demands for consumption, agriculture, and other human activities. The effects that changes in access to water will have on businesses will be nothing short of transformational to the global economy, creating winners (those that manage water well) and losers (those that mismanage water resources) -- and in turn, creating a significant new investment, creating significant new investment opportunities.
