WATER CONSERVATION

THE FACTS

  • Over 2 billion people live in countries experiencing high water stress.
  • 20 percent of the world's population walks an average of 3.5 miles a day to get drinking water.
  • By 2030 it is predicted that global demand for water will grow by close to 30% and 4 billion people will live in areas of high water stress.

OUR BLUEPRINT COMMITMENT

We are committed to using as little water as possible and ensuring that as much of it as possible comes from a sustainable source.

WHAT WE ARE DOING...

Water Efficiency

We've invested in new technologies to help us reduce the volume of water we need to sanitise our fruit and keep our factories clean.

Taking extra care

We've implemented measures to help us reduce the water we consume, such as self-closing taps on sinks and dual flush systems on our loos. We've also carried out training to raise awareness among our people of the importance of conserving water.

Water Recycling

We've introduced new systems to help us recycle our water. Our new water plant at our factory in Benin will be able to recycle over 90% of the water we use.

Supporting Communities

Through our Foundation, we have provided 15 water systems for communities in Ghana, helping over 40,000 people access safe, clean water for drinking.
