Water Use

Water is a vital resource for creating our therapies, which makes it our most significant environmental impact. It serves a critical role throughout our operations, including incorporation into our products, sterilization and cleaning of equipment, cooling towers, irrigation and domestic use.

We seek to make sure every drop counts, working to conserve and recycle water whenever possible. From more efficient irrigation and water reclamation, to optimizing the water used in our cooling towers and HVAC systems, we’ve been finding increasingly innovative ways to conserve this valuable resource.

For details on our water conservation and reclamation initiatives and performance, please see our 2013 Corporate Citizenship Report and Performance Data.
