Alliance for Water Stewardship

As proud members of the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) we will encourage partners to get behind the AWS mission of ‘the responsible use of freshwater that is socially and economically beneficial and environmentally sustainable’.

This is achieved through the application of a standard (the AWS Standard), that drives, recognises and rewards good water stewardship performance. Developed through a four-year, global multi-stakeholder consultation the AWS Standard provides a universally-applicable framework for major water users to understand their water use and impacts, and to work collaboratively and transparently for sustainable water management within a catchment context.
