July Green Business RoundtableJuly 13 | 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM (add to my calendar)
Topic: The Evolving Importance of Water With increasing demand for water, and greater uncertainty in its availability, businesses may no longer assume that secure, long-time water supplies will be available. Thus, business investors must adopt due diligence and risk assessment protocols with regard to long-term water availability as part of their investment strategy.
The issues surrounding water that Mr. Muys will address include: - The need for significant water infrastructure investment with diminishing financial resources - Water markets, conservation pricing and water rights trading - Changing laws and regulations. - Innovation and technological solutions
