We’re proud of the strides we are making in reducing our water consumption. In 2020, we pledged to accelerate our global water performance by 2025, with a commitment to reduce the water intensity of our operations by 10% against our fiscal 2020 baseline and to improve our wastewater quality year-over-year.
With continued pressure to reduce water usage in a state where water resources are limited, our engineering team designed a water polisher system to capture, clean, and reuse the water in one of our manufacturing facilities in California, USA.
As a result, we’ll be able to reduce our water use by more than 335,000 m3 per year–the equivalent of almost 134 Olympic swimming pools. This initiative advances us one step closer to fulfilling our water performance goals.
At Saputo, access to clean water is essential to the long-term success of our business and the success of the communities we operate in. Our goal is to pursue growth as a world-class dairy processor while striving to minimize the environmental impacts of our activities.
