Total Produce Joins The Alliance for Water Stewardship
Total Produce is committed to the UN sustainability goals and the sustainable use of water in the fresh produce supply chain.
The Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS), launched in 2009, provides guidance and a framework to ensure responsible water governance, sustainable water balance and good water quality. The aim of the water standard is to drive social, environmental and economic improvement by engaging with operational sites and growers to better understand and address water challenges in their respective catchment areas.
Having a water stewardship system is not without challenges but it will also provide opportunity and a progressive route towards best practice and beyond.
Total Produce is proud to have joined the Alliance for Water Stewardship and commits to work with our sites to achieve certification by 2025. We will also work with AWS to improve water stewardship and best practice with our partner growers. Collaborating with experts like AWS and working to a global standard provides us with a recognised route to managing the water in our control in a responsible and sustainable manner and reinforces our commitment to the UN sustainable goals.
