Note: Business Water Risk: Ripple Effects from Watersheds to the Capital Markets This 7-week course presents an overview of how water has impacted risks to businesses and their supply chains, and how corporate financial managers and institutional investors are starting to incorporate risks in their accounting and asset allocations. Corporate water risk exposure is a function of three variables: 1) company/sector-specific characteristics (e.g. water intensity of production), 2) the water conditions in particular geographies (e.g. drought-prone or strictly regulated), and 3) the strength of corporate management (e.g. proactive vs. reactive) in mitigating risks. The challenge is how the information from the physical world is translated in the financial world, and vice versa. It is often perceived that the proper risk management strategy for water in a corporate context is technology-based (new supply, recycling, monitoring, etc.). The course will describe how capital commitments for technology and infrastructure are often a last resort, because they are expensive, long-term, and often their cost cannot be passed on to the consumer. Short-term, financial risk management is preferred, such as hedging and insurance strategies. This course will explore corporate water risk and financial response strategies, and discuss commercial tools available to sustainability, corporate and financial managers. This include corporate water footprinting, regional asset risk mapping (Aqueduct), corporate operational risk assessment (Water Risk Monetizer), and financial asset risk signaling (WaterBeta).
