Performance on Water Management
In 2014, our consumption of purchased water increased by 4.9% against 2013. While some of this increase can be explained by an improvement in water monitoring at affiliate level, other contributing factors include business growth (which also includes an increase in headcount), the acquisition of more water-intensive businesses, the relocation of offices and stockpiling of water to minimize the impact of price increases. Our water intensity, defined as water consumption per full-time equivalent employee, remains stable.
