The Huffington Post has run a Q&A with Elkington where he argues that the water agenda is important for a range of different reasons such as access, supply and quality.
He wants water to take centre stage at major events such as the annual World Economic Forum in Davos.
Elkington was in Switzerland this year but if you happened to miss him there, you can catch him instead at the Real Business Entrepreneurs’ Summit.
It’s on Tuesday, 15 April in London. Also on the speakers’ list are Steve Leach from Bigmouth Media, Grant Bovey from Imagine Homes, and dragon James Caan.
