The amount of water our operations create and contribute back to the environment
Clean air and water are vital to our health, economic prosperity and the environment. Many communities depend on rivers and streams as sources for drinking water and irrigation. Mankind, our fauna and flora all need clean air to live and grow.
On average, a person inhales about 14,000 liters of air (~3,700 gallons) every day and uses between 100 and 190 liters of fresh water (26-50 gallons). Poor air and water quality can adversely impact people’s health and contain particulates that settle out of the air onto land and water bodies affecting fauna and animals.
Our first pillar is focused on clean air and water. In this section, we explain the aspects and variables we monitor and measure, and illustrate our contributions to clean air and water as compared to what we use.
