At Sibelco, we have identified water management as one of our top ten priorities. Each of our sites is expected to manage its impact on local water sources. Whilst rainfall levels and other environmental conditions vary significantly between our operations worldwide, we are working to developa common set of standards and best practices
. Our target is for 50 percent of our sites to have BATNEEC** principles implemented within their water management programmes in 2025, as compared to 38 percent in 2019.
Locally and globally, we are looking at ways tomaximise water conservation
through investment in new infrastructure and technology, the development of closed-circuit systems and the introduction of new recycling methods.
** BATNEEC: best available technology not entailing excessive costs e.g. closed water system, maximum water reuse and minimal volume of water in the process
