After all, the state is home to more than 7,000 Nestlé employees and their families. As California plans for another year of drought conditions, all water use is understandably being closely examined. We applaud Governor Brown for his leadership in addressing this crisis and will do our part to help this cause.
Water: it is a common agenda for all of us, for every walk of life. It’s our planet’s most valuable resource. Nations are powered by it. Life depends on it. And soon, we’ll be fighting over it.
We think of water as infinite and inexhaustible, but the hard truth is that we’re depleting, polluting, and wasting water from aquifers and other fresh water sources in such vast quantities that we’re not allowing these sources to renew themselves, resulting in drastic drought conditions across the globe.
