How We Manage Water
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 December 2014, SGS signed the WASH Pledge which commits signatory companies to ensuring appropriate access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene for all employees in all premises under company control within three years of signing the pledge. (See our 2014 Sustainability Review for more details on this initiative.)
