Action on water

Treating water with the care it deserves

Water is the main ingredient in our products and essential to our manufacturing processes. We’re taking a value chain approach to treating water with the care it deserves. 

In many of our territories, water resources are affected by over exploitation, poor water management and the impacts of climate change. Water scarcity and deteriorating water quality in our supply chain have become major issues for our business in Western Europe. We’re working to ensure a sustainable supply of water, by reducing the amount of water we use in our operations and protecting local water sources for future generations. The work we do to promote clean water and sanitation helps to support UN Sustainable Development Goal 6.
