We have been integrating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles into our daily operations and risk management approaches for many years. Our European operations have been CarbonNeutral® certified for eight years running, and we have developed and implemented programs around water quality and sustainable yield by working alongside highly respected organizations such as the International Water Association in North America and Watercoolers Europe.
We intend to accelerate our sustainable practices in the years ahead through:
- Elevating our water stewardship practices through compliance by 2022 with the Alliance for Water Stewardship’s international standards for our owned key spring water sources.
- Reducing our carbon footprint through lower greenhouse gas emissions and becoming CarbonNeutral® certified in the United States by the end of 2021.
- Continuing sales and distribution of our returnable, refillable, and recyclable 3- and 5-gallon bottles.
