With World Water Week just days away, we recognize the vital importance of water — not just within our own operations, but to our employees, customers and the communities we touch. We envision a world where water is protected for people and nature. P&G Trailblazer Shannon Quinn has had a powerful ripple effect. She took that vision and brought it to life, accelerating a water positive future that protects this vital resource within our operations and for the people we serve.
Shannon spearheaded our new 2030 strategy that enables P&G to help address the global water crisis by restoring more water than we consume during manufacturing in 18 water-stressed areas and by restoring more water than P&G consumers use in two high water-stressed cities. Shannon’s expertise and passion for water stewardship will have a ripple effect across our business and those we serve around the globe.
Earlier this summer, we announced a strategy to help build a water positive future that includes restoring water in 18 water-stressed areas around the world for people and nature, responding to water challenges through innovation and partnerships, and reducing water in our operations. This comprehensive effort includes a global portfolio of water restoration projects that will provide a range of solutions to protect ecosystems, replenish groundwater supplies, reduce the amount of water diverted from essential bodies of water, and improve water quality for the community and the wildlife that depends on them.
