Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)


August 2013 – the Guardian features the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership's water collaboratory, as leading businesses sign up to participate in this innovative programme.


Following the success of the innovative interactive roundtable Guardian Sustainable Business event held in partnership with Anglian Water on 10 July 2013, the Guardian published a series of articles and infographics in print and online as part of their 'In Focus' sequence. The articles outline our approach for collaborative business action to address the paradoxical combination of increasingly frequent flooding and growing pressure on over-consumed water resources.

Engaging a diverse group of stakeholders such as business, regulators, local authorities and conservation bodies will be vital to finding solutions to the water challenges of our time. There is an opportunity to join the group of leading businesses who are developing the practical steps necessary to deliver a multi-sector perspective and vision to the critical debate of too much and too little water. Innovative solutions and implementations are being designed to reduce risk and increase resilience to flooding and drought.
