Kirsten James, Senior Program Director, Water at Ceres

About this talk

Institutional investors from around the world joined Ceres last August in launching the Valuing Water Finance Initiative, a new effort to engage 72  companies with a high water footprint to value and act on water as a financial risk and drive the necessary large-scale change to better protect water systems. Kirsten James, Senior Program Director of Water at Ceres is my guest for this episode of the Sustainable Finance Podcast (SFP). James joins me to discuss this investor-led initiative aimed at moving companies to respond to the global water crisis. Signatories to this initiative include financial institutions such as pension funds, mainstream asset owners and socially responsible investors. The Attachments tab for this SFP Episode contains links to several publications regarding Ceres' engagement with companies about the global water crisis.
