By 2030, the global demand for water is expected to exceed supply by 40%.¹ Conserving water for future generations must be a priority for everyone, including industries, which are responsible for 22% of worldwide water use.² For example, in our large manufacturing facilities, water is critical to control temperature and humidity for our products and to sterilize the equipment needed to produce medical devices. Water is an essential and finite resource. For years, we’ve been conducting in-depth analyses of how water is used at our facilities around the world. In FY22 we reported a 14% reduction in water usage intensity compared to a FY20 baseline toward our FY25 goal of 15%.
