UN World Water Day: How does Glencore use water responsibly?

Author: Glencore | Date: 22/03/2020

We recognise access to safe and clean water and sanitation as a human right. Water is a shared and finite resource. We aim to preserve water sources, protect the waterways we use and support access to high-quality water.

Through good water management, we minimise our impact on water resources – for the benefit of local water users and ourselves. Our Tweefontein site in South Africa uses water recycling to supply the local community with a clean, reliable source of water.
