Abstract: United Nations treaties guarantee the human right to water. Although states must fulfill this human right and businesses must respect the state’s obligation, approximately 900 million people around the world do not have access to safe drinking water. Despite growing awareness of the need for sustainable water use by companies, increasing global population and inequitable access to water will create controversy and lead to conflict.
