TS No. 174: Water Footprint for Kernel Crushing Plants

Water is one of the most important natural resources. In many regions, human well-being and ecosystem health are being seriously affected by changes in the global water cycle, caused largely by human activities. Today water scarcity is a serious issue facing our planet right along-side with climate change. Market barriers trends also have lately been geared towards environmental performance. With increasing attention on sustainable development, the environmental performance of palm oil production is now defining issues in trade. Recognising the importance of water, focus is now also given to water through water foot printing of products.
