AWS Working Groups

AWS Working Groups

The Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) convenes working groups in five sectors:

  • Agricultural Supply Chains
  • Food & Beverage Manufacturing
  • ICT & Microelectronics
  • Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals & Personal Care
  • Textiles & Apparel

The working groups are made up of mainly AWS Members and partners who work with us to identify barriers to water stewardship and find solutions to overcome them.

The working groups allow organisations to collaborate with other business leaders, NGOs and regional experts to get a deeper understanding of the water challenges faced by their sector and to set the agenda for water stewardship. They are valuable spaces for peers to share their experiences using the AWS Standard, to ask questions, and for experts in the field to present their research and findings.

Join an AWS working group and you’ll find purpose-driven individuals united in a mission to protect the earth’s freshwater resources.

Participation in AWS working groups is largely limited to AWS Members, but new participants who are interested in learning more about AWS and the work we are doing are welcome to join up to three meetings.
