This book critically examines such strategies and provides an overarching analysis of the effects that mounting corporate involvement has had on the global water discourse.
More specifically, it explains why companies from the food, beverage, textile, and mining sectors have started to incorporate water management objectives into their business strategies, how companies work in partnerships with other stakeholders to realize these objectives, and how these actions acquire wider political legitimacy. It presents insightful interview material from business leaders and other high-level stakeholders.
