Kimberly-Clark and Deltares Launch Innovative Tool for Sustainable Water Management WaterLoupe dashboard to help stakeholders identify factors driving water risk across the entire watershed, and explore sustainable stewardship strategies
On World Water Day, March 22, Kimberly-Clark Corporation announced launch of WaterLoupe, an interactive, web-based tool to monitor local freshwater supplies and consumption trends, and generate actionable insights to mitigate local water risks. It partnered with research firm Deltares for it.
WaterLoupe tracks data on social, economic and climate factors impacting water availability within river basins and displays the information on a highly visual, user-friendly dashboard. The tool allows users to assess water risks for an entire watershed as well as specific sectors and sub-groups, such as industrial users, farmers and households, over a 30-year time horizon.
Kimberly-Clark plans to use the WaterLoupe tool in the high-risk river basins where it operates manufacturing facilities by 2022. In the coming months, the company and Deltares will present the dashboard to their NGO partners and other manufacturers to obtain feedback on its functionality and content and identify further improvements.
