The Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) Standard is the first comprehensive global benchmark for responsible water stewardship. It provides guidance to major water users and managers seeking to assure responsible water governance, sustainable water balance, good water quality, and healthy water-related sites and values. Join companies in the agriculture, food and beverage, and manufacturing sectors who have already begun implementing this standard.  


As an accredited certification body, SCS Global Services can help you demonstrate your conformance with AWS Certification. We can also provide AWS Consulting to get you closer to achieving certification.
