Caterpillar's Commitment to Managing Water
Today, water scarcity affects around 700 million people, and current trends indicate the problem will escalate. By 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population could be living in water-stressed regions. 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. Our 2015 absolute water consumption was 3.82 billion gallons of water, a reduction of 12 percent from the previous year.
