Tap water in Switzerland meets the highest standards of hygiene, taste and safety. This is due to strict guidelines for water protection and the everyday work of more than 2,500 water suppliers.
Water as a resource also brings inequalities to light. Increasing production of food and consumer goods, global trade, climate change and urbanisation compromise the availability and quality of water. For hundreds of millions of people, daily access to water is an existential challenge.
After centuries of development, Switzerland has the privilege of an excellent water supply. Meanwhile, access to water is an existential challenge for hundreds of millions of people worldwide.
We create ecological value in Switzerland and enable social compensation for people without access to clean water.
With our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) services, we carry our values and goals into everyday life in Switzerland. Together with around 600 partners, we raise awareness of water issues and integrate the concept of redistribution into everyday life. WfW partner companies from the gastronomy sector give value to our high-quality tap water or even do without branded water altogether with the WfW GREEN approach. With WfW COMPANY, companies support WfW in their everyday business and communicate the advantages of their actions to customers and employees. With this cooperation, WfW partners not only reduce unnecessary transport and waste of bottled water, but also increase the social perception of tap water. We also promote these added values through additional services such as lucernewater.ch or NORDPOL.
About 600 partner companies in 24 Swiss cantons act as ambassadors of WfW values.
Transport and waste of over 1.3 million plastic bottles are omitted each year.
More than 100,000 people are aware of the value of clean water every year.
