Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all

Access to clean freshwater is a fundamental human right, yet millions of people today do not have access to clean water for drinking, cooking and sanitation.

This SDG has several 2030 targets to which every company can contribute. These targets aim to achieve universal access to safe and affordable drinking water and sanitation for all; improve water quality by reducing pollution, eliminating dumping and minimizing the release of hazardous chemicals and materials; halve the proportion of untreated wastewater; substantially increase water-use efficiency and reduce the number of people suffering from water scarcity by ensuring sustainable withdrawals and supply of freshwater; protect and restore water-related ecosystems; and strengthen the participation of local communities in improving water and sanitation management.
