CREO and The ImPact have partnered to produce Water: An Impact Investment Primer for Family Offices and Foundations.

Water is a finite natural resource unlike any other. It is required for life itself and sustains almost every natural and industrial process on the planet. Increasing volatility in water quality and quantity present evolving risks for the planet and for humanity. Addressing the local and global challenges that reduced water dependability and declining water quality pose will require trillions of dollars of new investment. Private capital must play a role in developing, implementing, and scaling solutions to water problems. The universe of available water investments is still nascent, creating opportunities for early movers motivated to create impact. Families, along with their family offices and foundations, are uniquely positioned as catalysts and leaders in the water investments market. Families can deploy solutions-oriented, patient capital across asset classes to deliver impact alongside financial return. This primer maps water investment opportunities and provides several inspiring examples of how families are actively investing to address local and global water challenges.
