Although many companies outside the United States are beginning to acknowledge that water poses real risks to their business, limited analysis exists to reveal how companies in the United States specifically perceive and respond to the issue. To help fill that research void, my firm, VOX Global, along with Pacific Institute conducted a survey of more than fifty US-based companies to gain a better understanding of the ways in which US businesses view water and its impact on their business.

Some of our high-level findings are presented in the graphic below. How high of a priority do you think mitigating water-related risks should be for US companies? Share your thoughts in the comments section below and see more fascinating findings in the full study.
