We are dedicated to being a socially responsible employer, community member, and global citizen. Through our products and solutions, we contribute to making life better for millions of people every day.
As part of our 2025 Strategy, our current ambitions are:
- We will reduce our water consumption and CO2 emissions by 50% by 2025.
- We will save 50 billion m3 of freshwater through efficiency and treatment by 2030.
- By 2030, we will have contributed to providing safe drinking water to 300 million people in need.
- We aspire to be climate positive by 2030.
In 2020 we dived further into our Strategy 2025 ambitions. In this process, we learnt more about our strengths, capabilities and limitations. We have become wiser in how we can define contribution in a meaningful way and what our main contributions are. This has a great impact on our water and climate ambitions.
We are currently revising our ambitions to be more precise and transparent and in clear alignment with our new organisation.
Our revised ambitions will be presented during 2021, when we will also introduce our road map for each of them.
Embarking on a journey
Our strategic journey represents our ambition to do whatever is in our power to help achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, in particular, #6 and #13.
The goals that we have set for ourselves can only be accomplished with partnerships. Customers, employees, communities, suppliers, NGOs, governments, other businesses: these stakeholders are our allies in creating change, and we won't realise our full potential without them.
We recognise and continually contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (the SDGs), in finding new ways of doing business — ways that are inclusive and environmentally sustainable.
