Danone's immediate priority wherever we use water is to improve the efficiency of water use and reduce the impact of industrial processes on its quality. Our goal is to manage water quality and quantity risks at the watershed level and return all wastewater to natural ecosystems clean. Danone seeks to set the example by continuously reducing water consumption and waste in its plants, Danone has a target to reduce by 60 % its water related to process intensity by 2020 and also strains to ensure that used water returned to nature is of adequate quality for downstream ecosystems and users, by implementing strict corporate standards (defined in the Danone Clean Water Standards). Thanks to water watcher and water projects in all plants; Danone Waters china reduce water consumtion by 20% between 2015 and 2016. The WaterWatcher tool allows monitoring of water use in the bottling sites and helps identify areas for improvement. This tool has been rolled out to every division site. The sites measure all water consumed for every use (production, cleaning, etc.) to identify the items generating losses and define appropriate action plans for reducing these losses. The sites also have annual water loss reduction goals, with their performance published quarterly by the division. More than 15 billion liters have been saved in this way since 2008 (equivalent to 15,000 thousand metric tons)
