Creating shared value
By protecting shared water resources today, we ensure they are safeguarded for future generations.
For our business
Protecting resources helps us build a more resilient business.
Why it matters
Water is key to all life. Protecting it is a joint endeavor and one that we recognize we have a responsibility to advance.
As the climate changes, so does the global availability of clean, safe water. The impacts are apparent at a local level, with those in vulnerable societies feeling it most. This includes many of the farmers who grow the ingredients for our products.
We are passionate about protecting water – and about supporting farmers to use this precious resource as efficiently as possible.
Demonstrating our commitment
We knew when we set out our water commitments that they had to be ambitious. We are proud to have achieved significant progress in five years: from dramatically reducing our water footprint to working with dedicated partners to tackle some of the world’s most pressing water issues.
Caring for water is about more than simply using less. It is also about making sure vulnerable people have access to clean water and proper sanitation. We are uncompromising in our commitment to launch and support more local water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programs every year.
