Clean Water and Sanitation
Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
One in three people live without sanitation. This is causing unnecessary disease and death. Although huge strides have been made with access to clean drinking water, lack of sanitation is undermining these advances. If we provide affordable equipment and education in hygiene practices, we can stop this senseless suffering and loss of life.
Goal 6 + Diageo
Water is Diageo’s most important ingredient. It is also an incredibly precious, shared resource.
Already today, one person in five has no access to safe drinking water and 2.3 billion people lack access to basic sanitation services. At Diageo, we recognise the water crisis affecting communities, cities, and companies around the world and are working to be part of the solution. Water is essential to our own production processes and is vital to ecosystems, local economies, the communities in which we live and work, and especially to grow the crops we use to make our products. Managing our impact on water, and being good stewards of this resource, is our highest environmental priority.
