WATER CHAMPIONS PROGRAMME
Have you ever asked yourself this question – What is the value of water? After a brief contemplation, anyone would realise that an answer to this question is not quite straightforward. It is abundant yet scarce; invaluable yet ‘free’; sustains life yet, if contaminated, it can be life-threatening; water gives joy but it can also cause a lot of sorrow.
In spite of playing such an important function in sustaining and augmenting human life, it is quite unfortunate that water is seldom given its due importance by companies. This, despite the fact that water is consumed as a raw material, solvent, coolant, transport agent, and energy source. But this situation is rapidly changing.
Availability of water resources has become a key concern for companies as population growth, changing lifestyle patterns, rapid urbanisation and industrialisation, and climate change place unprecedented pressure on limited water supplies. Seasonal changes in water availability and long-term water shortages due to unsustainable use have already constrained growth in select geographical areas and threaten to dampen economic growth. In the context of these water challenges, there is an urgent need for efficient and sustainable use of the world's limited water resources.
The Water Champions Programme has been designed with the objective of increasing the awareness and building capacity around managing this resource in Tata companies.
