Corporate responsibility is part of everything we do. We collaborate with organizations around the world to improve nutrition and health of those in our communities, provide access to education, encourage responsible stewardship of natural resources, foster sustainable economic development and promote responsible business practices in our supply chain.
We are providing clean water in communities that have poor or limited access to safe drinking water. In Zambia, we have provided 530 Hippo Water Rollers to collect, store and transport water more efficiently. These durable rolling barrels transport 90 liters of water, four times the amount carried by bucket. We have also built fresh water wells in Kenya, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe to provide a safe, clean water supply for communities.
