Project Overview

The strategy to address this risk includes: -Zero water factory: We have implemented zero water technology in Modesto Dairy factory, which is be able to extract water from milk and recycle it (delivering expected 70’000m3 savings per annum). -Recycling water: By upgrading cooling tower technology in our water bottling factories in California, so that they use treated instead of drinkable water. -Implementing robust standards: We have started implementing the Alliance for W...

The strategy to address this risk includes: -Zero water factory: We have implemented zero water technology in Modesto Dairy factory, which is be able to extract water from milk and recycle it (delivering expected 70’000m3 savings per annum). -Recycling water: By upgrading cooling tower technology in our water bottling factories in California, so that they use treated instead of drinkable water. -Implementing robust standards: We have started implementing the Alliance for Water Stewardship International Water Stewardship Standard in our Californian factories, which sets strict criteria for managing water in an environmentally, socially and economically beneficial way. The first factory plant to receive AWS certification is the Ontario site. -Working in partnership: We work with governments, UN bodies and other stakeholders to help address local and global water issues through public policy debate and collective action: We are a founding signatory of the UNGC’s CEO Water Mandate; To develop a way to scale corporate water stewardship in California, we are also members of the California Water Action Collaborative (CWAC). This group aims to create a platform for collaboration that helps improve water security in California for people, businesses, agriculture and nature.The cost provided consider the investment needed in water saving technologies to reduce water withdrawal as done in Lagos de Moreno Mexico.
