We owe everything to Nature, so we preserve it—naturally.
Drop by drop, we innovate together for future generations, encouraging teamwork and fulfilling Danone’s dual commitment to business success and social progress.
As part of good water stewardship we manage water resources responsibly and sustainably, we reduce water use in our operations and support initiatives that improve access to safe drinking water. In 2014, Volvic and Unicef celebrated the 10th anniversary of their “1L for 10L” initiative, improving access to safe drinking water for approximately 130 thousand people in Niger.
In addition we assure our packaging is 100% recyclable and run various consumer recycling programs like “Dale Un Giro” in Argentina, “Bala” in Spain and “Aqua Peduli” in Indonesia.
Danone Waters also pilots projects in Mexico (Pepenadores) and Argentina (Cartoneros) to significantly improve the social economic status and working conditions of local waste pickers and has ambitious plans to scale these initiatives up in the coming years.
In 2008, evian committed to reduce its CO2 footprint, and we cut emissions per liter of evian (gCO2/L) by 40% in five years. During COP21 evian was the first global brand in our portfolio to announce it’s commitment to become carbon neutral by 2020.
