Water and Environmental Sustainability

water and environmental

Water is a scarce resource. Our long-term success depends on the water resources that supply our business operations and support the livelihoods of suppliers and consumers, which is why water is one of the focus areas of Creating Shared Value. Nestlé’s water efforts are centred around the six elements of the UN Global Compact (UNGC) CEO Water Mandate.

In the South Asian region, a large section of the community do not have access to clean drinking water. In order to create awareness in the community about the importance of water, Nestlé has been actively setting up clean drinking water projects in rural areas.

"The clean drinking water fountains and water filters provided to the hospital by Nestlé Lanka have benefitted a range of our patients and visitors. Our patients and the entire staff at the hospital appreciate the extensive work carried out by Nestlé Lanka in making clean drinking water available to us."
