New Expectations & Game-Changing Ambitions for the Water Action Decade: Accelerating Progress on Water Access, Sanitation & Hygiene in the Workplace
WASH4Work is pleased to share a new report outlining advancements in leading practice on water access, sanitation and hygiene in the workplace, and corporate WASH actions in focus for the water action decade.
The business case for investing in WASH access is getting stronger. The business benefits of ensuring WASH access are starting to be more defined; going beyond basic compliance to unlock multiple benefits. Important links are being made on how WASH access can contribute to corporate water stewardship commitments to improved water quality and quantity, as well as to broader corporate sustainability goals including gender equality, improved health and well-being, education, climate resilience and economic opportunities for communities.
Businesses have a unique opportunity to change the game and close the gap on WASH access through the broad reach and influence of their workforces and supply chains. Measuring collective business progress on WASH in the workplace through a standardized reporting framework can demonstrate business contributions to closing the 4x acceleration gap.
“There are now higher expectations on business to bring climate-resilient solutions, increased investments, and to extend corporate responsibility, traceability and accountability for WASH access beyond workplace operations to supply chains and employee homes.”
In 2022 the WASH4Work program has focused on preparing businesses for these important shifts in new expectations and game-changing ambitions for water, sanitation and hygiene access in the water action decade to 2030.
