Water consumption

We need water to live, and it continues to grow scarcer. The World Health Organization estimates that more than one billion people worldwide do not have access to clean drinking water. As a service provider, our water consumption is comparatively small compared to agriculture and the manufacturing industry. We almost exclusively use water within the scope of our office activities. Water consumption also plays but a minor role along our supply chain. For that reason, water is not a main focal area in our CR management activities. Nevertheless, we use our Water Consumption KPI to record our annual water consumption, which we have been able to consistently reduce since 2012.
