Water is a precious resource. We are committed to using water resources in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable way, and to implementing solutions to reduce water consumption through re-using and recycling. We also continuously work to improve our waste water quality.
From FY2014 to FY2016, we improved our water intensity by 4%. Since FY2016, our water intensities have increased by 3%, mainly due to changes in the type of products we manufacture. Despite this setback, we remain committed to improving our environmental performance. We will look for additional ways to protect our resources, and aim to implement solutions that are economically and environmentally sustainable, such as the initiative we implemented in our White Bear Lake facility described in our Case Study section.
