WATER IS ESSENTIAL
Water is essential for life on earth, its an essential part of the human body and also essential to fulfill Danone Water’s mission to “inspire people towards healthier hydration”. Our mission is built on our conviction that what you drink during the day makes a difference to your health and that water is the healthiest beverage.
We have learnt from liquid intake studies across the world that up to 40% of the people in the countries where we operate drink less than the recommended daily intake. Through our iconic water- and water-based brands we are committed to help people improve their hydration habits.
GOOD HYDRATION IS ESSENTIAL FOR HEALTH
Danone is putting in place actions to establish healthy hydration as an integral part of public health nutritional guidelines.
- Raising awareness of the importance of healthy hydration. Through more than 200 campaigns we have reached close to a billion people worldwide, raising awareness of healthy hydration and the benefits of drinking water often in partnership with local experts and authorities.
- Continued investment in scientific research on the correlation between hydration and health
- The sharing of knowledge and best practice around healthy hydration through our global Hydration for Health Initiative.
- The protection and restoration of natural water ecosystems in cooperation with local communities and stakeholders. Examples of this are APIEME (Association pour la Protection de l’Impluvium de l’Eau Minérale d’Evian) in France, Parque Salus in Uruguay and Villavicencio Reserva Natural in Argentina.
