The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) wants to help with your water issues, and has launched its Global Water Tool.

The hefty tool is free and not too hard to use, though it takes some time to download it and get a feel for how it works. Companies can input their global water use data and compare that with validated water availability and sanitation info to learn how efficiently the company is using water resources.

The tool uses water data from the Food and Agriculture Organization, World Health Organization and UNICEF Joint Monitoring Program, University of New Hampshire, and the World Resources Institute.
