Sustainable water

This principle is about using water efficiently, protecting local water resources and reducing flooding and drought.

One Planet Goals for sustainable water
  • Everyone to have access to clean drinking water
  • Water used efficiently and returned to the environment clean
  • Manage water sustainably and reduce the risk and impact of flooding and drought


For example: access to water, reducing demand, water reuse, water treatment, flood risk management, embodied water in products and services and anything else we thing is important.

Water is a very local issue and so demands solutions specific to the particular location. The process of storing, treating and transporting water has a wide range of environmental impacts and a carbon footprint, even in water-rich areas, so it should always be used efficiently.
