Nestle has been crowned as the winner of the 2011 Stockholm Industry Water Award. Recognising Nestle for its leadership, performance and efforts to improve the water management in its supply chain, the honour also acknowledges the company’s efficient operations and its work with suppliers, particularly farmers.

 

“Over the last couple of years, we have worked relentlessly to achieve better recognition of the importance of water as the most valuable natural resource. We have also been striving to use it more efficiently in our daily endeavours to bring good nutrition from farm to fork,” says Peter Brabeck-Letmathe (pictured), chairman of Nestle, who received the award on behalf of the company.

 

The StockholmIndustry Water Award – administered by the The Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) – recognises and encourages innovation and leadership in sustainable development of the water sector.

 

Awarded to any sector of business and industry that improves the global water situation, the award was established in 2000 in collaboration with the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. An independent award committee, comprising of leading academics in water sciences, reviews all submissions and selects the winner following an open nomination process.
