Implementation of a sustainable relationship with suppliers is a key component of Danone's activity, within its own business and throughout its ecosystem. Danone south Africa is engaging 4 years plan jointly with WWF 1)Water Efficiency Collaboration Initiative through: i) Assess irrigation system efficiency against manufacturer design & operation and Identify possible design and/or management improvements. (i.e. within acceptable design norms, irrigation scheduling practices)ii) Model potential savings through implementation of identified infrastructure changes (e.g. correct pump, pipe size, system application). iii) Apply soil/plant/climate-based irrigation scheduling- conduct soil assessment, invest in moisture probes/weather station/flow meters.2) Waste Water Treatment Collaboration Initiative through: i) Assess waste & storm water handling capability to identify opportunities to reduce point source pollution activities or potential risk. ii) Assess compliance to National Water Act. iii) Assess versus best practice and in relation to topography. vi) Assess in relation to already stressed water system3) Eco-Agriculture Collaboration Initiative: Understand wetland/ riparian extent & health, with the aim to develop wetland management plans with the farmer4) Land, Water & Biodiversity Stewardship: The “Working for Water” model emanated fromSouth Africa. Funding can be attracted for Alien Invasive Planteradication and maintenanceprogrammes if local communities are employed.
