Water for people
Clean Drinking Water Projects
Access to safe drinking water is a prerequisite for economic and social development. South Pole Group is specialised in results-based financing approaches to effectively provide safe drinking water to communities in need.
Quantified and certified results from our high-quality water projects offer transparent and communicable benefits, for both public donors and private companies. They also provide real positive impacts on the ground. We set up drinking water projects for farmers and employees along corporates’ operations and supply chains. This helps to guarantee a healthy and committed workforce, and to ensure the satisfaction of customers and other stakeholders.
Water for other uses
Tackling corporate water risks: Watershed investments
In order to effectively mitigate water risks, companies increasingly focus on taking action in relevant watersheds beyond the site level. Projects contribute to tackling local water risks, mitigating physical water scarcity, improving relationships with local communities and authorities and fostering cooperation with other relevant actors.
South Pole Group is ideally positioned to develop water projects in stressed catchments where a company operates or sources from. This lets a company manage water more effectively in line with your corporate water strategy. Based on our extensive experience in developing sustainability projects worldwide, we assist in all steps: designing, implementing, certifying and managing targeted local water projects.
Water and climate change
Water assessment and disclosure
As lead scoring partner of the CDP Water program and with over 500 corporate clients worldwide, South Pole Group truly understands the links between sustainability and business. We are ideally positioned to assess corporate and production sites’ water impact and risks and assist in reporting these. Moreover, we support corporate water stewardship journey: from developing a sound fact base for decision-making to real action on the ground.
