Project Overview

During 2015 and 2016, the Omaha, Nebraska GoGreen employee engagement team held several plant-wide meetings to increase employee awareness about onsite water use and to generate water saving ideas. The Omaha 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 init...

During 2015 and 2016, the Omaha, Nebraska GoGreen employee engagement team held several plant-wide meetings to increase employee awareness about onsite water use and to generate water saving ideas. The Omaha 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. The Omaha plant is investigating water reuse projects to be implemented in 2017 or 2018. 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 or the local infrastructure constraint is not resolved at the Omaha plant, one potential solution would be to invest capital in either product relocation or 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 projects and those currently under investigation.
