In 2019, inaugurating a site near Sheikhupura (Punjab province) by its Water Vice President and Head of Technical Peter Hagmann, Nestlé Pakistan pays another promise of its commitment to make Pakistan a water-efficient country in the region. This was a part of its ‘Caring for Water’ Pakistan initiative partnered with Pakistan Agricultural Research Council (PARC), Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (UVAS) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF). This project saved more than One-million-gallons water in 2019 on 139 acres and has the potential to help save more than 1.4 million gallons of water every year.
