AWS Standard

Certificate Description

The AWS International Water Stewardship Standard (AWS Standard) is a globally applicable framework for major water users to understand their water use and impacts, and to work collaboratively and transparently for sustainable water management within a catchment context.

The framework engages water-using sites in understanding and addressing shared catchment water challenges as well as site water risks and opportunities. It demands water-using sites to address these challenges in a way that progressively moves them to best practice in terms of five outcomes; good water governance, sustainable water balance, good water quality status, important water-related areas, and safe water, sanitation and hygiene for all.

The standard is created by the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS), a global membership collaboration comprising businesses, NGOs and the public sector.
