Nestlé Waters 100% Committed to water stewardship
Nestlé Waters to certify all its sites to Alliance for Water Stewardship Standard by 2025
Nestlé Waters announced that will certify all sites by 2025 in accordance with the world’s first global water stewardship standard. It will reinforce our commitment to safeguarding water resources for future generations through our stronger collaboration with the Alliance for Water Stewardship.
“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. Today we pledge to certify all our Nestlé Waters sites around the world to this publicly recognized, credible water stewardship standard. This demonstrates how we positively contribute to the preservation of water resources wherever we operate, for the shared benefit of all water users,” said Nestlé Waters CEO, Maurizio Patarnello.
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, including in Pakistan, Canada and the United States.
The AWS certification process enables broader, improved collaboration among local stakeholders. This leads to a stronger understanding of local water challenges and more meaningful collective actions to address them – all vital to sustainable water resources management.“Responsible water stewardship is an issue that concerns us all – businesses, governments, individuals and communities. Meaningful and inclusive collaboration is the only way we can positively contribute to the future of water,” said Adrian Sym, AWS CEO. “We hope other major businesses will follow in these footsteps” he concluded.
