Water covers 70% of our planet, and it is easy to think that it will always be plentiful. However, fresh water—the stuff we drink, bathe in, irrigate our farm fields with—is incredibly rare. Only 3% of the world’s water is fresh water, and two-thirds of that is tucked away in frozen glaciers or otherwise unavailable for our use.
At Darling Ingredients we look for opportunities to positively contribute to the availability and quality of fresh water. We do this by reducing the consumption of fresh water we use and by optimizing the amount of water we give back to nature.
