CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) plays a central role
in driving companies and their suppliers worldwide to report
on carbon and climate change risks and opportunities. Com-
panies voluntarily respond to the CDP's questionnaire, and
develop carbon and climate change mitigation and adaption
strategies. In 2010 CDP started to invite companies to report
on water-related risks and opportunities, according the
growing expectations by investors, civil society and NGOs for
transparency and quantitative measurement of progress. The
goal is to catalyse action on corporate water stewardship to
safeguard water resources and address the global water
crisis.
Since 1999, DFGE works as a carbon footprint and eco-
logy expert for small and mid-sized companies as well as for
Fortune 500 corporations. DFGE is a CDP silver climate change
consultancy partner. We help companies to participate in the
CDP programs - from carbon, supply chain to the water pro-
gram.
Depending on your companys needs and goals of CDP
participation, we provide 3 dedicated service packages for the
CDP Water Program:
CDP Response Review
CDP Water Awareness Package
CDP Water Management Package
Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) builds on
basic information on water resources and use. Today the
nomenclature surrounding water information is yet not fixed
and allows different interpretations leading to confusion.
Besides CDP the United Nations (UN) are working on
International Recommendations for Water Statistics (IRWS)
to help strengthen national information systems for water in
support of design and evaluation of Integrated Water
Resources Management (IWRM) policies. IRWS was
adopted by the United Nations Statistical Commission
(UNSC) at its 41st session in 2010.
Cate Lamb, head of the CDP's water program stated in an interview with greenbiz*:
A good score will communicate to all stakeholders that good water stewards are superior, forward-looking companies
with a sound understanding of their risk profile.

Illustration of water stewardship
scoring levels by CDP
DFGE
Institute for Energy, Ecology and Economy
Only a few companies who started early to collect and
report water data to CDP have already reached the level of
water stewardship. Many companies are just starting to
integrate water data and related risks in their corporate
strategies. These are rated by CDP into the scoring levels of
"Disclosure", "Awareness" and "Management" (see graphic
on page1). Independent of these scoring levels we can
support you in your CDP water program submission with
our DFGE Response Review.
We evaluate your responses and check them regarding
completeness, consistency and validity of content. Our
findings will be documented in a presentation and
explained in a feedback call. This fixed price package helps
you to optimize your answers before submission to CDP.
From basic water data to water footprint and
water management
DFGE services to improve your performance related to water
You are not prepared for the invitation to the CDP water
program? Youre lacking capacities and knowledge for this
sustainability reporting? Weve put together a service
package of basic suport including the preparation of your
responses at Awareness level. We determine your com-
panys relative exposure to water risks and impacts and
calculate your water withdrawal at site.
By this we address questions like where your pro- duction is
facing issues of water scarcity or how your tier-one suppliers
are affected by water resources. The UN water category
Basic is used in this process as a benchmark.
DFGE Water Awareness Package
Your company plans to move towards good water
management with the goal to establish leadership over
time? Youre looking for expertise to improve your CDP
scoring? Our water management package supports your
company with answers to the CDP questionnaire at
Management level. We consult you in policy develop-
ment, governance and target setting as well as in identifying
your stakeholder interests and external engagement.
Our services include detection of water consumption, water
withdrawal by source type and in your value chain. Also here
we relate to the UN category advanced as a supporting
benchmark.
