Our efforts to ensure a healthy and sustainable future include investments in people and nature. Protecting water and other natural resources. Educating the next generation of leaders. Championing hygiene throughout the world. These are just some of the ways that we are working to drive positive change — for a better tomorrow and a better world.

Water Stewardship

We are always looking for ways to improve the use of water resources within our operations and within the watersheds in which we operate. Our commitment extends to the solutions we deliver to our customers and to the partnerships we have formed to support responsible use of the world’s limited freshwater resources. This includes advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to protect the quality and sustainability of water resources worldwide. 

We also seek to identify opportunities for our company and our customers to use water resources in a manner that benefits business, communities and nature. We understand the importance of the food-energy-water nexus and always consider the impact of water in our innovation process and in the products and services that we provide to help our customers implement their own water stewardship strategies.
