Targets and Progress<Water>

2030 2023
Reduction of water used in direct operation
Reduce the water intensity of production at our owned plants*1
by 35%*2 globally. In addition, explore reduction of absolute amount of water withdrawn in highly water stressed areas
Reduced the water intensity of production by 28% compared to 2015.
Water replenishment
Replenish more than 100% of water used in at least 50% of our owned plants*1 globally, including all those in highly water stressed areas, through local water source conservation efforts.
Water resource cultivation activities implemented in 41% of all owned plants globally.
For the plants located in highly water stressed areas, activities are implemented in 37% of those areas.
Sustainable water use in raw ingredients
Collaborate with suppliers to improve water-use efficiency in the production of water-intensive key ingredients*3 in highly water stressed areas.
  • As an initiative on barley production through regenerative agriculture, we began working with our malt suppliers to verify the improvement of water use efficiency by improving soil water retention.
  • Started building a pilot program to assess and support water use through regenerative agriculture for coffee farmers in the Cerrado region of Brazil.
Water education and access to safe water
Expand water education programs and initiatives to provide safe water access for more than 1 million people.
Total 1,070,000 people
Water education program: 710,000 people
Provision of safe water: 360,000 people
