Nestle India Reduced Its Water Consumption by 53%
New Delhi, India: On the occasion of World Water Day on March 22, Nestle India has reduced its water consumption by 53% and waste water discharge by 55% for every ton of production, thus keeping its commitment towards responsible water stewardship.

Nestle India is continuously working on conservation and optimal utilisation of water. To accomplish this, various initiatives have been launched to reduce, re-use and re-cycle water, across the value chain and with communities, for a sustainable future.

"We work closely with communities to create awareness on water conservation and preservation and at the same time use technology to reduce water usage in our manufacturing locations. We are working in schools around our factories to provide clean drinking water to thousands of students. We also have a water stewardship initiative with AgSRI at the Kabini river basin in Karnataka. The project sets up demonstration farms and trains farmers in ecologically sustainable practices to reduce the agricultural water withdrawal from the catchment area, while improving agricultural productivity" said Sanjay Khajuria, Senior Vice President Corporate Affairs, Nestle India.
