Water is a critical economic issue in the United States.  In the face of growing demand for water, coupled with extreme weather conditions, our nation’s water infrastructure system is failing.

In February 2013, Goldman Sachs hosted a summit entitled “Water: Emerging Risks & Opportunities”,  bringing together municipal and corporate clients, leading investors, government representatives, academics and non-government organizations to discuss the intersection of capital, policy and technology in addressing the water challenge. The summit builds upon an ongoing partnership with General Electric and the World Resources Institute, who co-hosted the event.
