Danone’s vision, “One Planet. One Health” translates their approach: bringing health through food and beverages in a way that is healthy for people and for the planet.
Water is both the limitation and the enabler to how Danone helps feed the world. And so Danone and other companies must fundamentally change their mindsets: by respecting the natural water cycle, rethinking the way they source water, how it is used in production processes, and how they share its access with communities.
Danone is using the Aqueduct tools to answer worldwide coverage on different perspectives such as water quality and quantity with detailed indicators. These indicators feed Danone’s Water Risk Assessment process on Operations and Supply Chain.
Danone fully supports the Aqueduct tool improvement, specifically on groundwater data, and wish a good equilibrium will be found between stability of results and evolution of the tool to better protect the Planet and People.
