Water Stewardship Verification

Recognizing Sustainable Water Stewardship


With the increasing pressure of working toward a net zero climate, water is becoming a key part of many businesses’ sustainability strategies. Corporations are needing to measure water impacts and manage water-related risks for environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting, corporate sustainability reporting (CSR), and sustainable development goals (SDGs).

How do companies know where to start? SCS Global Services is here to help companies navigate their water stewardship journey. With the SCS Responsible Water Practices program, companies can strengthen their sustainability commitments and demonstrate tangible improvements and successes over time. Our programs address corporate commitments, site actions, and watershed based programs.

Implement. Improve. Replenish. Verify.
