Water is a valuable and often scarce resource. It is also one which we share with other users such as farmers, local industries and communities.

As the global population grows, the demand for good quality water required to meet the needs of society, agriculture and industry, continues to escalate. This often occurs in the face of mounting water supply pressure caused by more frequent droughts.

Managing water responsibly and ensuring that adverse impacts on local and regional water resources are avoided, is a major consideration for all of our operations.
