Question

Has the brand (company) reduced its water use per litre of produced beverage by 10% in the past 5 years?

  • Dutch version: Heeft het merk (bedrijf) het waterverbruik per eenheid productie verlaagd met ten minste 10% in de afgelopen 5 jaar?
  • German version: Hat der Markenhersteller den Wasserverbrauch pro produziertem Getränkeliter in den letzten 5 Jahren um mindestens 10% verringert?

Reference

This question refers to the actual water use during production of a unit (hectolitre) of product and is also related to the product water footprint. EU water efficiency standards are yet to be set [1]. It is related to aspects EN8 and EN9 of the GRI Sustainability Reporting Guidelines & Food Processing Sector Supplement. The percentages in this question are based on best practices in the soft carbonated beverages sector.

Answering Guidelines

Answer yes:
[Brand has reduced its water consumption by XX% litres per litre of produced beverage in the past XX years (see link/page…).

Answer No:
[Brand] has reduced its water consumption only by XX% per litre of produced beverage in the past XX years (see link/page). This is not sufficient for a yes.
[Brand] has increased its water consumption by XX% per litre of produced beverage in the past XX years (see link/page).

Answer ?:
[Brand] does not communicate any information about its water consumption, if there is any, on its website. Sustainability information should be easily accessible for consumers to make responsible choices.
