Launched in 2012, the Water Risk Filter is a practical, online tool that helps companies and investors assess and respond to water-related risks facing their operations and investments across the globe. Developed by WWF and the German finance institution DEG, the Water Risk Filter has become a leading and trusted source of water risk data for thousands of users – from multinational corporations and SMEs to financial institutions – which have used it to evaluate hundreds of thousands of specific sites. After a major upgrade in 2018 and a wealth of new functions, the Water Risk Filter 5.0 will enable companies and investors to Explore, Assess, Value and Respond to water risks.
