Water: Supply Chain and Demand

Water: Supply Chain and Demand | Business Mixer | Scoop.it
A new report from the Carbon Disclosure Project, CDP Water Disclosure Global Report 2011: Raising corporate awareness of global water issues presents water findings from 190 companies around the world.

Via Flora Moon
Mr. O's insight:

Below is a 'snippet' from a report that talks about the effect that water has on companies operating in countries around the world (Honda and H&M).  Remember, what happens in one part of the world often affects the supply and demand in another...

 

1. When a factory experiences a water shortage and is shut down for a day, there is a significant loss of revenue.

2. If a supplier experiences a drought or flood, materials may not arrive or the price might go up.

 

In 2011, Thailand experienced serious flooding, and as a result, Honda was not able to get parts they needed for their cars, causing their third quarter earnings to plummet.

 

In 2011, Pakistan also experienced extreme weather that impacted their cotton crop, causing prices to skyrocket and H&M took a financial hit when it had to pay a premium for an essential material."
