Background to this consultation

25% of survey complete.
The Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) is a collaboration amongst some of the world’s leaders in sustainable water resource management who have led the development of the world’s first international water stewardship standard. The AWS Standard is intended to give companies and water service providers a systematic and verifiable way to assess, understand and improve their own water use, while providing a mechanism through which they can engage meaningfully with other stakeholders around sustainable catchment management. The beta AWS Standard was released in March 2013. More information is available at

This short survey is designed to inform the further refinement of the AWS business model, and will help to ensure that the Standard can deliver its intended impacts through a financially viable, multi-stakeholder organization. The survey has three sections
1. Participant information
2. Overall impression of AWS
3. Delivery of the AWS programme
