Water connects everything. That’s why leading companies manage water not just in-house, but also “beyond the fence” in collaboration with other water users. Many experts say that this is the best approach, but it also comes with organizational challenges and requires innovative solutions.

This lunch event, jointly organised by GreenBuzz and South Pole Group, convenes experts on this emerging topic, to explore the trends, challenges, and best practices of “beyond the fence” activities.

  • What kinds and how many beyond the fence line activities are currently implemented in the field? By whom?
