Twitter Chat Recap: #HEINEKENBaBW Protecting Our Water Resources
As one of the world’s largest brewers, HEINEKEN recognizes and embraces its responsibility to promote responsible water use and encourage others to do the same as part of its sustainability strategy ‘Brewing a Better World’ (BaBW). Aimed at advancing Water Stewardship, HEINEKEN recently announced a partnership with UNIDO to help support water sustainability in developing markets such as Algeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria and Tunisia.
In celebration of World Water Day, HEINKEN joined us for a Twitter chat about protecting our water resources as well as share insights, experiences and goals of the UNIDO partnership. HEINEKEN was represented by Ron Bohlmeijer, HEINEKEN’s water expert and Jan Willem Vosmeer, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at HEINEKEN. Representing their sustainability partner, The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (@UNIDO), was Barbara Kreissler from the Partnerships and Results Monitoring Branch.
The conversation around World Water Day and HEINEKEN’s stewardship efforts quickly took off. HEINEKEN understands the importance of water – as a necessity to their business and the world.
HEINEKEN recently announced a partnership with The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). They will work together in a range of sustainability issues that will promote inclusive growth in developing countries, including HEINEKEN’s water stewardship initiatives. #HEINEKENBaBW served as a great opportunity to chat with both organizations and the future of the partnership.
Water is an important topic that everyone should be concerned with, especially companies and organizations that need water for their production. During the chat, the audience shared their own insights as to why businesses should consider their impact on water resources.
Once our formal questions for our panelists wrapped up, we quickly moved into answering LIVE questions from the audience. So many great questions rolled in that our HEINEKEN and UNIDO representatives stayed a little longer to answer as many as possible.
Our #HEINEKENBaBW Twitter chat kept our panelists on their toes for over an hour. Our thanks to HEINEKEN and UNIDO for letting us explore their partnership and water stewardship initiatives. Please check out the Storify archive of the chat and if you have further questions for our panelists, be sure to tag @HEINEKENCorp and @UNIDO while including #HEINEKENBaBW in your tweets.
