The Water Integrity Network is a "coalition" focusing on corruption in the public sector, but counts corporate lobbyists for the private water industry among its members. Although the WIN claims to be an international coalition of water-rights stakeholders, the steering committee membership consists of individuals with strong ties to the World Bank and private water lobbying groups such as AquaFed.

The Water Policy Institute is a think tank project of the major U.S. law firm Hunton & Williams. In the 2007 Supreme Court case Massachusetts v. Environmental Protection Agency, Hunton lawyers argued that the EPA can not regulate carbon dioxide, under the Clean Air Act. WPI's corporate members include BP, Central Arizona Project and GE Water.
