Total Water Withdrawn
Total Water Withdrawn
Updated over a week ago

This metric is intended to capture the amount of water withdrawn by the organization from any source (i.e., surface water, groundwater, rainwater, seawater, wastewater, or municipal water supplies such as a water utility) and for any purpose during the reporting period.

The scope of this metric includes results from land or facilities directly controlled by the organization (i.e., land for which the organization controls land use through direct operation or management, including situations in which the organization's employees cultivate the land directly) and land or facilities indirectly controlled by the organization (i.e., land that the organization supports or influences but does not directly cultivate or manage). Examples in which an organization indirectly controls land may include purchase contracts, sourcing from farmer cooperatives, and providing products and services to farmers and other organizations that cultivate and manage land.
