United Nations Global Compact Network India realizes that there is an imperative need to design and introduce a Water Index in India which would serve as a fundamental index against which the industries can both measure and report their water footprint and find ways to address risks and co-create innovative solutions to preserve this scarce natural resource. In view of this vision, a core group meeting was organised at ONGC on 2nd May, 2016 in order to discuss the criticality and feasibility of introducing a Water Index for the industrial sector in India. The meeting was a part of initial consultation with some key stakeholders to discuss the issues related to water and the materiality risks associated with it.
