Leading global drinks companies collaborate to publish Water Reuse Decision Guide

The Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable (BIER), has launched a Context-Based Decision Guide for Water Reuse and Recycling. It says the guide is designed to be relevant to any facility, in any industry, in any location in the world, and "is intended to accelerate internal conversations and decisions at the regional and facility level with regards to investments in advancing water stewardship".

The Global beverage companies who developed this guide state that addressing the global water challenges of today and tomorrow requires transitioning “beyond reduction” through broader adoption of water reuse and recycling by all facilities, across all industries, in every location around the world.

The guide is intended to accelerate this transition by making water circularity concepts more approachable to local leadership and operations.
