Jain Water Footprinting
In September 2010, IFC and Jain Irrigation Systems, recent winner of IFC's Client Leadership Award, completed a comprehensive water footprint assessment that was the first of its kind to be undertaken by an emerging market company. For the first time, the report included all three steps of a water footprint assessment: assessment of total freshwater volume consumed, sustainability assessment, and formulation of a response strategy. This report serves as an example of an effective tool for managing water-related risks and can pave the way for similar assessments with IFC clients in countries which face water scarcity.
