Episode #24 — 06 April 2021 Water Stress Undermines Global Supply Chains

with Cullen Mitchell

Water touches almost every product, so it’s worth considering it as a critical input to every strategic supply chain decision. Climate issues continue to ripple through global industrial supply chains – from Texas to Taiwan. The combination of COVID-related shutdowns and drought is upending the industrial landscape. If anything, recent, water-related events show us how important it is to have a coherent water management strategy for today… and tomorrow. Even if your firm is not directly at risk, your supply chain very well might be.

Bluefield’s Reese Tisdale and Cullen Mitchell discuss some of the factors and risks associated with water, climate, and disruptions that will reshape global supply chains.

Reese also shares his thoughts on recent news and highlights why these headlines matter and what they could mean for the water sector.
