Water is an essential and precious resource – however, climate change is exacerbating water stress and scarcity in many parts of the world. We treat water with the care it deserves, aiming to improve our water use efficiency and protect local water sources for future generations.
Water is critical to our business. It’s the main ingredient in our products, essential to our manufacturing processes and critical to ensuring a sustainable supply of the agricultural ingredients we depend upon.
Water is also one of the world’s most precious resources, however climate change is exacerbating water stress and water scarcity in many parts of the world. We are witnessing water shortages, droughts and floods in regions where we produce our products or source our ingredients.
To address water scarcity and water quality challenges, we adopt a value chain approach to water stewardship, focusing on water efficiency within our own operations and working to protect the future sustainability of the water sources that our business, our communities and our suppliers rely upon.
We’re focused on improving the water efficiency of our manufacturing and cleaning processes. We also aim to return 100% of our wastewater safely to nature, and replenish 100% of the water we use in our beverages.
Our actions support UN Sustainable Development Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation.
