Water is a vital natural resource that all people, animals and plants need to survive. Access to this important source of life is a growing concern around the world due to droughts, pollution and the availability of infrastructure to provide an adequate supply of clean, safe water. At the same time, rising planetary temperatures mean that water cycles will accelerate and will lead to rain that is more frequent, heavy and intense.
Our water usage varies across operations depending on the manufacturing process. Our mineral fiber production process is the most water intensive. We are working to make our processes more water efficient and increase the recycling of water within processes.
