Today, water scarcity affects around 700 million people, and current trends indicate the problem will escalate. By 2025, water security could be an issue for two-thirds of the world’s population. We continue to implement conservation strategies that reduce water use in our operations, explore water-treatment technologies, introduce water-recycling processes at new and existing facilities and train employees about water resources to raise their awareness of the issue. 

A few of these projects are highlighted here, including Caterpillar of Australia Pty. Ltd. in Tullamarine, Australia; Caterpillar Hydraulics Advanced Components & Systems Division in Jesi, Italy; and office facilities in Peoria, Illinois.
