Our Approach to Water Management
We use water in our laboratories, and for drinking, food preparation, cleaning and sanitation.
Water efficiency is managed through the SGS Energy Efficiency in Buildings program. Requirements for water use, reduction, monitoring and reuse are contained within our green building checklist, the use of which is promoted for new buildings and major renovations to existing buildings.
We track our water usage through our Solaris data management system and benchmark our trend countries against each other. In 2013, we conducted a study to identify which of our affiliates are subject to water stress. In addition, in water-stressed countries, such as India, Australia and Singapore, we have initiated specific water-saving projects. Please see our 2013 Sustainability Highlights for examples.
