    How is global water scarcity impacting communities, companies, and the economy?

    How is global water scarcity impacting communities, companies, and the economy?

    The water crisis isn’t new; however, climate volatility is putting additional stress on existing water supplies in select markets like Australia, the western U.S., Latin America and the Middle East. This is a critical global issue due to growing populations, ongoing industrialization of nations, and lifestyle changes. These factors have resulted in the demand for freshwater surpassing the available supply worldwide. In this episode, ESG Unlocked is thrilled to welcome water expert Reese Tisdale, the esteemed President and CEO of Bluefield Research, for an enlightening discussion. In conversation with host Pamela Mutumwa, Reese shares examples around the globe and delves into the driving forces and impacts of this crisis. Reese highlights active solutions such as water desalination and reverse osmosis, strategies to combat water scarcity, and explores how water is reshaping the roles of individuals, communities, businesses, and governments in addressing this pressing issue.

    How can companies manage greenwashing risks?

    How can companies manage greenwashing risks?

    As the sustainability field evolves, the regulatory, operational and public relations risks associated with greenwashing have intensified; posing a more significant threat to companies and their stakeholders than ever before.  In response, companies are continuing to raise the bar of sustainable business practices by expanding disclosures, increasing transparency, and ensuring the accuracy of their data collection and metrics reporting. In addition, issuers are leveraging second party opinion providers for an independent assessment of their Green, Social and Sustainability-linked financing frameworks; giving investors the security that the projects they fund are suitably sustainable. To explore this topic further, Scot Case, Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability at National Retail Federation joins ESG Unlocked host Pamela Mutumwa to explain what greenwashing and greenhushing are, provide examples of greenwashing in our daily lives, and discuss how companies can remain credible in the face of greenwashing pressures.
