At CANPACK we continuously strive to reduce water consumption through employee awareness programmes and technological innovations. In addition to having advanced water measurement systems in place, where it is practical to do so, we have invested in rainwater collection systems in some of our plants and this water is used in certain production processes. Other activities involve local communities, for example in India we have installed ponds and rainwater wells.
The business also improves water quality through complex infrastructures, such as water and wastewater treatment plants and this in-turn ensures that 100% of the water used in our production facilities can be treated on site. Regular water tests are carried out across the company to prevent groundwater contamination and the business provides employees with water quality training.
Finally, in 2020 CANPACK introduced focused, site specific water reduction targets for 2021 and 2025.
