Today we've saved plastic bottles from landfill

Waterlogic’s commitment to a sustainable future

The damage being done to our planet by single-use plastic pollution and unnecessary high carbon emissions is one of the most pressing issues of our time.

We have a responsibility to do whatever we can to change and improve this situation, and we continually work to reduce the negative impact we have on the natural world, as well as providing the tools for our customers to do the same.

Going for Green

We have set two ambitious sustainability targets from our 2020 baseline, which are linked to our financing.

  • Reduce carbon emissions by 2.5%

    Reduce carbon emissions by 2.5%

    2.5% annual reduction of Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions (on-site use of liquid fuel and gas, use of fuel in owned vehicles, use of grid and renewable energy)

  • Reduce single-use plastic by 1 billion bottles

    Reduce single-use plastic by 1 billion bottles

    1 billion annual reduction in the number of single-use plastic bottles consumed by championing consumer change and growing the net installation of mains-fed dispensers

Our impact and performance in 2021

We thrive as a business because we seek better ways to do business; ways that are better for the people we interact with every day and better for the planet too.

Being a responsible business is not just about expressing our ambitions, it’s about what we do to fulfil them. We recognise the challenges we face to encourage behaviour change and to engage with our communities to make sustainable living commonplace in the future.

Watch the video for just a few of the contributions we made in 2021.

Sustainability

At Waterlogic, we are committed to helping eradicate plastic

The production and disposal of single-use plastic bottles continues to have a detrimental impact on our planet.

Globally, one million plastic bottles are bought every minute with just 9% recycled. By 2050, it is estimated that our oceans will contain more plastic waste than fish, with 12 billion metric tons of plastic in landfills taking more than 400 years to degrade. What’s more, the life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions from plastic gives rise to nearly 1.8 billion metric tons of CO2 a year; from petroleum extraction, manufacturing and transportation to incinerating and recycling. In fact, bottled water is 900 times more carbon intensive than drinking mains-fed water.
