Engaging with and supporting the development of local communities is an integral part of our business strategy. We strongly believe that community investment is beneficial for our growth, development and sustainability.
In addition to contributing to the development of the local economy, we therefore continually invest in social and environmental projects in neighbouring communities.
Our core social responsibility project - Water for the World™ programme focuses on three areas: improving access to water and sanitation; promoting sustainable water management practices to preserve water resources; and raising awareness in communities and across the value chain. Since 2007, the Water for the World™ programme has directly impacted some 300,000 people around the world.
Through our partnership with the National Government Organisation like Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP), a further 800,000 people in some of the poorest communities in Africa and Bangladesh have gained improved access to water and sanitation.
