An Expanding Pool–Investors Start To Pay Attention To Water Risk: The Economist January 9, 2021 "At current rates of consumption, the demand for water worldwide will be 40% greater than its supply by 2030, according to the UN. Portfolio managers are realising that physical, reputational and regulatory water risk could hurt their investments, particularly in thirsty industries such as food, mining, textiles and utilities. One worry is that shocks to supply could drown or dry out a company’s assets. Another concern is that the price a company pays for water could rocket. A survey by CDP, a non-profit firm, found that 783 big listed companies had faced a total of $40bn of water-related losses in 2018." - The Economist Share: LinkedIn Older Post Protecting Low-Income Communities Through Climate Insurance: InsuResilience Investment Fund Newer Post Climate.
