Spotlight on Pakistan: Learning from Nestlé's first AWS certification in the world

Thursday, September 3, 2020 - 3:00pm

SDSB-LUMS Faculty, Dr. Zehra Waheed recently authored a landmark case study, "Implementing the Alliance for Water Stewardship Standard - Nestlé Sheikhupura, Pakistan", co-authored with Sohaib Waseem (WWF Pakistan) and Maheen Malik (AWS Pakistan). The study illustrated an emerging new paradigm in business, one driven by a water standard. In an operating environment such as the one in Pakistan, where there is little or no policy or regulation-driven change, responsible practice from industry tends to be driven by the need for cost-effectiveness and improved management of reputational and environmental risk.


This case study takes readers through the process of adoption of a global standard that improves awareness and management of issues related to water stress, and in turn is pivotal in developing a wider understanding of where drivers of change lie, in addition to presenting proven adoption processes within the specific Pakistani context. The case study is available through the AWS website, here


In recognition of the unique contributions of this case study, a webinar, "Spotlight on Pakistan: Learning from Nestlé's first AWS certification in the world", will be organized on Thursday, September 3rd, 2020 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Pakistan Standard Time). Register for the webinar here
