Water Leaders

An international network
The Global Water Leaders Group brings together the CEOs of water utilities and agencies to address the world's water issues.

Meeting the challenge
Water services represent one of the great challenges of the 21st century. Growing scarcity, dilapidated infrastructure, environmental protection, and rapid urbanisation are putting increased pressure on water utilities. But often the political support is not there to drive the investment that is required. The Global Water Leaders Group brings together the people who can make a difference.

Overcoming fragmentation
Water is an intensely local business. The average utility serves around 23,000 people living within 10 miles of each other, and has very little to do with what happens outside its catchment area. But the challenges are global, and so are the solutions. By bringing together CEO-level people in the water industry from around the world, we bring the solutions to those who need them.

A Common Solution

Every water utility or agency is different, but they all face common challenges. The Global Water Leaders Group is about developing and deploying a common solution based around the need for better coordination on finance, innovation and regulation. Working with dynamic CEOs from across the industry, and supported by management consultants McKinsey, this is a major global initiative to accelerate change in the water industry.
