Clean Water
and
Sanitation

Water is used for forming, washing, rinsing and cooling in the beverage can manufacturing process. However, water is also one of the world’s most essential natural resources and, in many parts of the world, it is becoming increasingly scarce. We feel that it is therefore crucial that can makers take measures to ensure that water is used responsibly.
