SUSTAINABILITY

WE ARE AN ACCOUNTABLE BUSINESS AND WE TAKE CARE OF OUR PEOPLE AND OUR PLANET

Almar Water Solutions understands sustainability as a strategy imperative that drives long-term growth and competitiveness, but we see it as much more than that. It integrates criteria for environmental, social and ethical issues into business decisions and establishes a dialogue with stakeholders: workers, suppliers, partners, shareholders, local communities and the water sector in general for the good of all.

Our approach to our sustainability policy is articulated in terms of the company’s mission, vision, values and innovation principles.

THE PEOPLE AT THE CENTER OF OUR ACTIVITY

Here at Almar Water Solutions sustainability is integrated into all our business activities, from day-to-day office tasks to strategic decisions.

Our team is committed to building a better world through innovative solutions that address the challenges of water and climate change. At the same time we are constantly working to improve our relationships with colleagues, suppliers, clients and other stakeholders.

We believe cooperation is the key factor in the creation of a sustainable future.

STOP BOTTLED WATER
WE IMPLEMENT SUSTAINABLE INITIATIVES IN OUR DAY-TO-DAY WORK

Did you know that at least 8 million tons of plastics end up in the oceans every year? This is the equivalent of pouring the entire contents of a garbage truck into the water every minute…

Plastic bottles can take 450 years or more to degrade and decompose. During this long process their chemicals seep into the soil and the plastic micro-particles are released into the water.

Researchers in a recent study examined various types and brands of bottled water for plastic micro-particles and proved that 93% of them contained some type of micro-plastic including polypropylene, polystyrene, nylon and polyethylene terephthalate (PET)

In addition, tap water is strictly regulated by the state, regions and provinces, which is not always the case with bottled water.

Here at Almar Water Solutions we are committed to taking care of the environment and the health of all. That is why we have implemented an initiative in our offices to replace bottled water with reusable bottles to fill with tap water.
