business case
Business Case

Water is:

  • The main ingredient in all of our beverages
  • Essential to our manufacturing processes
  • A life-sustaining resource for the communities and ecosystems that make our business possible
  • A key component of many of our ingredients, including sugar

“Water is not just important to our businesses. It is critical to the communities we serve. We cannot have a sustainable business unless the communities we serve are sustainable themselves.”

E. Neville Isdell
