Organization Overview

The main objective of FAMM is to preserve the watershed of the San Juan River, which supplies more than 60% of the water used and consumed by the Monterrey population.

The Monterrey Metropolitan Water Fund (FAMM) was established by a multi-stakeholder consortium in September 2013. The main objective of FAMM is to preserve the watershed of the San Juan River, which supplies more than 60% of the water used and consumed by the Monterrey population. It also seeks to raise awareness about responsible water use and increase the percentage of government funding invested in the watershed. There are four key objectives: helping to mitigate flooding, improving water infiltration, raising awareness about water, and working alongside government to attract resources which favour the watershed.

HEINEKEN's involvement in the Fund takes two forms. The local HEINEKEN brewery Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma in Monterrey is a direct participant in FAMM as part of our water-balancing commitment. Additionally, the FEMSA Foundation (created by FEMSA whose brewing activities were acquired by HEINEKEN in 2010) is one of the founding organisations of the Latin America Water Funds Partnership together with the Nature Conservancy.
