SDC’s long-term commitment in supporting the concept of water footprint, at implementation level and conceptually, has led to many successful projects and also to the publication of the ISO Norm 14046 on the water footprint.

SDC promotes a three-step corporate water management process that encourages companies to review and reduce their own water use (in which the water footprint concept is very beneficial), and to reinvest in water-related projects. Therefore, SDC is also engaged in developing new financial mechanisms to leverage private sector funding such as through Water Benefit Certificates.

Furthermore, SDC supports the concept of payments and investments in watershed services in order to secure water resources through investing in natural infrastructure for water services (Payment for Environmental Services).
