Water

Clean, plentiful water is an important resource for our companies and communities. Since 2009, our operating companies have reduced water consumption by approximately 27 percent. We introduced a water intensity goal to further our companies’ progress in water reductions:

GOAL
  • Reduce water intensity (gallons/$million revenue) by 30 percent by 2020 against a 2014 baseline.

Each operating company is responsible for identifying and executing its own strategy to meet this goal.

Our operating companies also recognize the importance of their suppliers adopting good water management practices, and suppliers of tobacco receive water-management training in their Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) training.
