Expert Session: Water risk across asset classes

  • Date: 10/06/2021

Water is a finite resource with only 2.5% potentially being usable for life on earth.

To meet the SDGs that directly concern water (SDG 6 and SDG 14) an estimated US $ 670 billion of annual spending is required. But in fact, áll SDGs rely on water. Although water is one of the six systemic risks identified by the World Economic Forum, it is also the risk where the least progress has been made.

In this expert session, VBDO and DWS intend to make real progress on this vital theme. With an outstanding panel of water and investment experts, we will discuss the possible and necessary role of water in global investment.

  • Cate Lamb (CDP Global Director of Water Security and Water Lead, COP26 Climate Champions Team)
  • Michael Lewis (Head of Research ESG, DWS)
