Water

Challenge: Reduce water usage while improving yields.

Half of the world's population will live in water-stressed areas by 2025, due in large part to a changing climate and the demands of increased populations. Agriculture is the largest user of water, consuming 70% of all freshwater resources. Water isn't neatly fenced by administrative or geographic boundaries, which means its uses are often challenged by interconnected and sometimes competing interests.

Our Initiatives Include:
  • Undertaking water risk assessments and follow the standards of the Alliance for Water Stewardship
  • Using precision irrigation on our owned farms to reduce water use
  • Providing famers with better weather forecasting and actionable insights regarding water use
  • Monitoring and reducing water use in processing

We report on the goals and targets in the Natural Capital section of our 2020 Annual Report.

Scaling Impact Through Sector Initiatives Such As:
Bringing Water Security to Coffee Communities through AtSource

No Tears for Onion Farmers

I’ve been farming for 20 years in Egypt and working with Olam for the past two seasons. During this period, myself and fellow farmers have been able to reduce water consumption.

Irrigation Pilot Brings Dramatic Results at Vietnam Coffee Farms

Vietnamese coffee farmers working with Olam have seen water consumption on their farms drop by 33% following the installation in 2016 of six pilot irrigation systems – and contributing to a significant drop in production costs.
