    This paper explores the role of business cases as a tool‐in‐use for decision‐making processes on Water management. The literature is rich on generic discussions of the business case for corporate sustainability, whereas
    there have been less efforts to examine the concrete use of business cases in everyday organisational life. Drawing on the practice‐based management literature, it is concluded that the business case tool has a decisive influence
    on water management activities among European food companies. However, the analysis also show the business case tool are not set in stone but can be adapted and negotiated in a number of different ways to make change happen. Empirically, the analysis is based on interviews and survey data from a European study of Water management within the food sector.
