Reducing the quantity and improving the quality
At Nile Breweries in Uganda, I'm proud that we have reduced our water consumption from eight hectolitres of water per hectolitre of beer produced in 2006 to less than five hectolitres today. This has been achieved through a number of capital projects such as the recovery of filter-backwash water for floor washing in non-production areas, machine cooling water recovery and reuse and improved metering.
We have also worked hard to improve employee awareness of saving water. Each week, every department in the brewery reports their water usage to ensure performance matches our targets.
