Water Consumption

Our 2015 Sustainability Footprint Goal is to reduce water consumption by at least 30 percent at global sites that are located where the renewable freshwater supply is either scarce or stressed as determined by the United Nations analysis of river basins globally.  

For all other sites, we will hold water consumption flat on an absolute basis through the year 2015, offsetting any increased demand from production volume growth through conservation, reuse and recycle practices.  

We have reduced our consumption by 3 percent at sites in water scarce or stressed locations and 9 percent at all sites.
