Caring for water

Caring for water

Water is the source of life, a basic human right and vital to our entire value chain, yet sources are unevenly distributed across the planet. These need to be managed responsibly to secure the supply needed for food production and support access to safe, clean water.

Our approach

We aim to be responsible stewards of water, ensuring it is available and managed sustainably, protecting it through collaborations, treating the water we use as effectively as possible, supporting our supply chain in the use of water, creating awareness on how to use water efficiently, and improving access to water and sanitation.

India accounts for 4% of the global fresh water resource, yet most of India is now classified as water-stressed with per capita consumption less than 1700m3. Nestlé India is committed to not only reducing its water footprint, but also championing the cause of water stewardship and raising awareness on water management across its value chain.

Our commitments on water are identified and defined in consultation with our stakeholders and in line with aspects identified as material to us. We aim to create a positive impact utilising our resources and expertise to conserve a natural resource that is important to our organisation, employees, farmers and other stakeholders across our value chain.
