Water use focuses on water scarcity and how effectively we’re using and conserving our water supply.
Clean water and sanitation
Ensuring we contribute to responsible water management
Life below water
Ensuring we use and protect our oceans sustainably
We’re aiming to reduce water use across our operations, especially in areas with high water scarcity risks, as well as protect water quality in communities that we operate and live in.
Water Recycling and Reuse
In 2021, we established the following water conservation targets to achieve by 2030:
FCS PROCESS PLANTS:
25% reduction from 2020 baseline (3.00% annual reduction)
FCS THERMAL PLANTS:
10% reduction from 2020 baseline (1.25% annual reduction)
FCS SYSTEMS, FTDS PUMP AND FTDS TANK PLANTS:
Change to 100% low-flow fixtures by 2030.
The majority of the water that we use is related to non-contact cooling. This means that a lot of it is discharged to local sanitation departments, where we have several initiatives in place to minimise the volume of water that we use in production.
