Water Resources

Basic Views

Water is a key resource that is essential for our business activities. There are concerns that regions where access to water will deteriorate (greater water risks) as a result of climate change and economic activity will increase around the world. It is with this understanding that the Group strives to reduce its environmental impact by effectively using limited water resources without waste in its business activities and by discharging wastewater following proper treatment.
