Impressive news from Kraft, “Kraft Foods Reduces Global Plant Water Use By More Than 20% In Less Than Three Years“:
Over the past three years, Kraft Foods has reduced water used in manufacturing processes by more than 3 billion gallons (nearly 12 billion liters) – enough water to fill nearly 5,000 Olympic swimming pools. That’s a 21 percent reduction since 2005, exceeding the company’s goal two years early.
“We’re changing behavior and getting results,” said Steve Yucknut, Vice President, Sustainability. “Around the world, thousands of our employees are working on projects that help us reduce our environmental impact. We focus on manufacturing, since that’s where we use the most water for internal operations. And we pay particular attention to water-scarce areas, where the need is greatest.”
