Sustainable Water Management
Vanguard Peru recognizes that in the long term the company’s success is based on effective sustainable water management in its agricultural production regions. We believe that effective sustainable water management will require that provisions be established, firstly so that water satisfies the human right to water, then to ensure that ecosystems can function and, finally, to ensure that water is used efficiently for agricultural and industrial use.
Vanguard Peru believes that governments should take the lead in establishing effective general policies in water usage in which Vanguard Peru and other water users can operate. Vanguard Peru wishes to support this process. Vanguard Peru is committed to developing its business in a way that facilitates effective sustainable management in the regions in which it operates and is committed to focusing on measures that are cost-effective and relevant within the region.
Water is an important natural resource for Vanguard Peru. Agriculture is one of the main users of water in the world. Vanguard Peru is creating a history of leadership in sustainable water management through continuous improvement in the efficient use of water in its operations and innovative programs of the highest quality worldwide, as in the case of AWS (acronym for Alliance for Water Stewardship – Alliance for Sustainable Water Management). We advocate for global and region-level collaborative action in sustainable water management. We formally declare and reconfirm our support for the human right to water.
The “Vanguard Peru Commitment to Sustainable Water Management” has been prepared to guide and align our efforts. Specifically, Vanguard Peru undertakes the following:
