A responsible, sustainable use of water requires the commitment from many different stakeholders, i.e. from regulators, NGOs, academia, the public, the private sector and others.

To facilitate the transfer of learnings and know-how, we are committed to the transparent reporting of our water-related activities. More information about our water strategy can be found in our sustainability report.
