Nestlé Waters has today announced that it will extend its commitment to water stewardship by certifying all of its sites to the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) Standard by 2025.
The global standard promotes responsible water use that benefits local communities socially and economically, while ensuring environmental sustainability of watersheds – all priorities for Nestlé.
Since first committing to the AWS Standard in 2017, Nestlé Waters has already certified eight of its factories around the world.
"Water is one of the most critical sustainability challenges facing society and our business. At Nestlé, we care for water. We are 100% committed to safeguarding water resources for future generations," said Nestlé Waters CEO, Maurizio Patarnello. "By pledging to certify all our Nestlé Waters sites against this publicly recognized, credible water stewardship standard, we demonstrate how we positively contribute to water resources where we operate for the shared benefit of all."
This strengthened commitment is part of how Nestlé cares for water across four key areas: in factories, in watershed, across its agricultural supply chains and in communities where it operates to provide access to clean water and sanitation.
