​Water is a vital element in our manufacturing process and we recognise that fresh water availability is a growing global concern.  


Our objective is to minimise the impact our water usage and discharge have on the environment, the water ecosystems and the water balance of the areas where our operations are located. In areas with fresh water scarcity, we are committed to help safeguard the availability of fresh water for the local communities where we operate.

Targets / Actions

Water usage

  • Perform water impact assessments of our sites on their environment in relevant areas and develop water usage measures as appropriate before 2017

Water discharge

  • Decrease Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) in our mill system by one third by 2020 compared to 2005 and assess specific mills for phosphorous and nitrogen effluents before the end of 2015
