Activities towards developing this strategy include:

  • 2010: Developing the business case for water risk management incorporating watershed management and operational measurements
  • 2011: Developing a Holcim Water Measurement Protocol that improves the measuring and monitoring of water use and consumption at Holcim operations
  • 2011-2012: Developing a water risk framework which encompasses eight categories of risk covering areas from water consumption to stakeholder engagement and concerns
  • 2013: Devlop rish mitigation guidance through case study development and analysis

Expected outcome: Strengthened approach to water management for the Holcim Group
