Nestlé Waters Allentown Factories Achieve Globally Recognized Water Stewardship Certification

Nestlé Waters North America announced that its Allentown, Pennsylvania factories received certification under the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) Standard.

The AWS Standard is the first comprehensive global benchmark responsible for water stewardship across social, environmental, and economic criteria, created and supported by prominent environmental conservation groups, development organizations, and industry leaders.

AWS provides a platform for organizations to identify shared water challenges within the watershed where their facilities are located. Facilities demonstrate conformance under four key categories:

  1. Good Water Governance
  2. Sustainable Water Balance
  3. Good Water Quality Status
  4. Healthy Status of Important Water-Related Area

Nestlé Waters is committed to implement the AWS Standard at all of its factories around the world by 2025.
