Water

Water is the source of life on earth, and the planet’s most precious resource

The pressures of growing populations and climate change make water scarcity one of the most urgent environmental and societal issues of our times. Water is also fundamental to agriculture and food security, and we are determined to play our part in helping to conserve our limited water resources.

Society

Managing our water resources carefully helps ensure access to safe, clean water.

Business

It also means we can secure the sustainable supply of water that food production depends on.
