Launched in 2009, the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) is a global partnership founded by organizations such as The Nature Conservancy, Pacific Institute, and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) dedicated to promoting the responsible use of freshwater. The international water stewardship system drives, recognizes, and rewards improved water stewardship performance through the AWS Standard and provides the first comprehensive global benchmark across social, environmental, and economic criteria. It also provides a voluntary framework for major water users to understand the effects of their water use and to work collaboratively and transparently for sustainable water management.
Our Global Commitment
Nestlé Waters is proud of our commitment to certify all sites to the Alliance for Water Stewardship Standard by 2025. So far, Nestlé Waters has certified 19 of its facilities around the world, including the Nestlé Waters Canada Hope, British Columbia factory which is the first AWS certified factory in Canada.
Adherence to this rigorous standard helps demonstrate our dedication to sustainable water management and will help us mitigate our water risks, address shared water challenges, and strengthen our reputation as a water user.
