Nestlé Waters

Water advocacy – from local to global

While upholding our commitment to operate in an efficient, sustainable manner, we also collaborate with local governments and other stakeholders to advocate for comprehensive, science-based laws that seek to protect water resources.

We have actively worked to bring groundwater protection laws to Maine, Michigan, New Hampshire, and the Great Lakes basin.

At the global level, Nestlé SA, our parent company, is a founding signatory of the CEO Water Mandate, an initiative led by the United Nations Global Compact focused on developing, implementing, and disclosing water sustainability and management practices. Nestlé SA has played an active role over the last three years during World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden, participating in discussions with global leaders, experts, and practitioners about important water issues and potential solutions. In 2011, Nestlé Waters will support Project WET's "Sustaining the Blue Planet" – the first global conference focused exclusively on water education and its role in solving the world’s pressing water issues.
