Business Often Taking Lead on Water-Energy-Food Sustainability, Report Finds; but Governments Must Catch Up or Risk Leaving Some Behind

A new report released by REEEP – the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership – shows how businesses can take the lead in creating sustainable solutions within the water-energy-food nexus. But governments must do more to help small businesses benefit from the value added of integrated thinking about water, energy, and food.


REEEP is funded in part by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism. This Ministry integrates responsibility for key areas that are essential to creating and ensuring quality of life and a livable future.

Through the Ministry for Digital, Business and Enterprise, the Govenment of Austria also provides funding for the Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN), a programme hosted by UNIDO and REEEP.
