Conservation of water resources
As the global population rises, so does the expected demand for water. Another issue is the ubiquitous presence of fresh water around the world. The depletion of water resources not only impacts water used for production, but also the procurement of raw materials. Drought, flooding, or poor water quality could also result in production delays.
The Ajinomoto Group is committed to further reduction in water use and wastewater emissions in our ongoing production processes, maintaining forests for water resources and engaging in other actions to create an environment that allows for sustainable water usage.
