GSK is a science-led global healthcare company – with three world-leading businesses – that researches, develops and manufactures innovative pharmaceutical medicines, vaccines and consumer healthcare products. Fresh water is critical to achieving universal health coverage, to providing sanitation facilities, and to safeguarding livelihoods. It is also essential to producing healthcare products. As such, there is a clear link between the availability of fresh water and GSK’s mission to help people do more, feel better, live longer. GSK faces a number of challenges across our entire supply chain related to water scarcity and management, ranging from the sourcing of raw materials and the impacts of our manufacturing and research facilities, to the use and disposal of our products by patients and consumers. GSK is committed to ensuring water is managed sustainably and equitably as a shared public resource. As a responsible business and a signatory of the United Nations CEO Water Mandate GSK has made water stewardship a priority.
