Sustainability leaders on water scarcity

“The global decrease in groundwater levels and our growing reliance on surface water fuels the debate around water use and stewardship and forces questions over who has the rights over it. Business has a role to play in defining these rights.”

Andy Richardson,Head of Corporate Communications, Volac


"Analyses of product life cycles and supply chains have clearly highlighted the fundamental value of water, both as a global good and as a core local natural capital resource. When water becomes scarcer locally, it has knock-on consequences on the retail and other industries. Therefore, it is in food retailers’ best interests to invest in adequate water stewardship to ensure the sustainability of product supply chains."
