Project Overview

The Sri City, India plant was built in 2015. Prior to construction, our Water Risk Assessment identified that the planned location represented a high water risk, which could limit the long term growth strategy. This risk was partially mitigated through the site design, by using treated wastewater for irrigation. In 2016, our Sri City plant replaced hoses with high pressure jets, reducing the time required for cleaning and savings 10,000 litres of water annually. The Sri...

The Sri City, India plant was built in 2015. Prior to construction, our Water Risk Assessment identified that the planned location represented a high water risk, which could limit the long term growth strategy. This risk was partially mitigated through the site design, by using treated wastewater for irrigation. In 2016, our Sri City plant replaced hoses with high pressure jets, reducing the time required for cleaning and savings 10,000 litres of water annually. The Sri City plant will continue to reduce water consumption through employee engagement, asset care programs, and capital projects within the next three years. While all Kellogg manufacturing facilities have established water-efficiency goals and are implementing water-saving initiatives, we are focusing on high risk locations. This strategy is expected to be an effective response to the short term risk to water stress. Water conservation and capital investment costs were estimated based on previously implemented conservation programs and projects and those currently under investigation. If growth is constrained at the Sri City plant, one potential solution would be to invest capital in either product relocation or additional water reduction/reuse technologies at this facility. This response is not expected to be required within the next decade. This strategy is expected to be an effective response to the long term water scarcity risks. Capital investment costs were estimated based on previously implemented conservation programs and projects and those currently under investigation.

Project Results

10,000 liters per year water savings.
