We are working to implement strategies for watershed improvement as they are identified (e.g., on-farm groundwater recharge).

We are continuing to conduct deep analyses of our key at-risk growing areas and facility watersheds. We realize that much of our impact is beyond our direct operations which ultimately may be affected. We are working to implement strategies for watershed improvement as they are identified (e.g., on-farm groundwater recharge). In large watersheds, our review will include current efforts in which we may participate. In California, we have participated in stakeholder engagement sessions to share our insights and to learn from others. As a result of this engagement we are working with other food/bev companies to find projects for joint efforts. See p 50-51 of our 2017 Global Responsibility Report.
