European Water Stewardship (EWS) is the integrative voluntary system for business and agriculture to assess, verify and communicate sustainable water management practices.
It is the result of a wide stakeholder process, coordinated by the European Water Partnership (EWP) and embodies the collective effort and know-how of water users in agriculture and industries. The EWS provides an applicable and in practice proven system of clear steps guiding companies in nearly all industries and in the agriculture area towards sustainable water management at operational and river basin level.
The program initiates private actions with independent neutral guidance, provides positive incentives for sustainable water management and supports existing legal processes in the European Union. The EWS includes a standard and an evaluation system that makes “business sense” for adherents; mitigating physical, regulatory and reputational risks, and offering tried-and-tested steps to secure water availability in future.
This program is fully supported by the EU and proven by the existing members out of the business and agriculture sectors, including well-known global corporations.
