Water and waste management companies face a host of environmental challenges and opportunities.
Climate change is creating increasingly volatile weather patterns, creating risks for water companies supplying the growing needs of millions of homes and businesses. Maintaining clean and plentiful supplies, minimizing waste and demonstrating robust environmental credentials is paramount. Waste management companies have a vital role in enabling the circular economy, turning waste materials into valuable resources.
Trucost provides solutions to help water and waste management companies understand and manage these challenges, as well as measure and communicate progress. Key to our approach is that we enhance traditional environmental indicators, from water and waste to carbon emissions and other pollution impacts, with environmental shadow prices to help companies identify innovation opportunities and demonstrate the shared value they are providing to society.
