Nestlé's Exemplary Commitment to Global Water and Sanitation Initiatives

Nestlé's unwavering commitment to promoting the fundamental human rights of water and sanitation deserves commendation. Recognizing that access to clean water is a basic human right, Nestlé, as a global business, is utilizing its considerable scale to extend support to communities worldwide. Collaborating with local organizations and partners, Nestlé is actively working to enhance water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) access for people in the areas where they operate.
What sets Nestlé apart is its strategic approach to WASH initiatives, driven by the Community Relations Process tool. This tool ensures that the impact of Nestlé's initiatives is maximized by engaging with local communities to identify and address their specific needs. Nestlé's focus extends beyond its operations, emphasizing the provision of safe drinking water and sanitation for both employees and the communities surrounding its facilities.
The launch of the Human Rights Salient Issue Action Plan on the Right to Water and Sanitation at the beginning of 2023 further underscores Nestlé's commitment. This action plan, embedded in Nestlé's water stewardship activities, aims to prevent and mitigate WASH risks in both operations and the agricultural supply chain.
Noteworthy is Nestlé's impactful intervention in Benha, Egypt, where a bottling facility and the local community of Kafr Arbeen faced water scarcity. Through collaboration with local municipalities, Nestlé replaced outdated water storage tanks, enhanced pumping efficiency, and installed a filtration system, thereby ensuring more homes have access to clean running water. Additionally, Nestlé's initiative to rehabilitate the Senaity canal not only prevented water leakages but also improved water flow to agricultural land, positively impacting crop health and the local community's prosperity.
In water-stressed Pakistan, Nestlé's commitment to WASH is evident through its factories meeting the WASH pledge requirements, benefiting over 7500 employees. The establishment of six drinking water facilities, providing clean and safe water to over 60,000 people daily, reflects Nestlé's dedication to making a meaningful impact in water-stressed regions.
Nestlé's holistic approach to WASH, spanning from community engagement tools to on-the-ground interventions, showcases a corporate responsibility that goes beyond business operations, contributing significantly to improving lives and communities globally.
