Freshwater represents 7% of the water used at our operated sites, and we have decided to focus our efforts on this unevenly distributed resource on the planet that we share with our neighbors. Our target is to reduce our overall(1) freshwater withdrawals by 20% at sites located in water-stressed zones(2) between 2021 and 2030.

Our environmental indicators (XLS)

(1) 20% is the target integrated in the reduction for each of the site. This is an initial approach aligned with the definition of water stress.

(2) Water-stressed zone 2030: Water-stress zones as defined by WRI (zones in which withdrawals exceed 40% of available resources).
