Water Stewardship

/Water Stewardship

By 2025, 100% of our communities in high-stress areas will have measurably improved water availability and quality.

More than just a key ingredient in our beer, water is a critical resource for the economic, social and environmental well-being of our communities. We brew our beers at the highest level of water efficiency and we continually challenge ourselves to do even more by looking beyond our own operations and improving water access and quality for both our communities and our breweries.

Itawa Springs InitiativeWe took action to protect one of Ndola’s most important water sources, the Itawa Water Springs. Through a Multi-Stakeholder Governance approach we partnered with various stakeholders to address land degradation and potential water source depletion. The initiative achieved the construction of water access points, housing and relocation of encroaching communities and well as ecological restoration and legal protection of the site.
