Natural Mineral Waters Europe collaborates with IUCN
Natural Mineral Waters Europe (NMWE) has announced its collaboration with International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) on the development of a biodiversity monitoring strategy and framework for the natural mineral water sector.
“NMWE will measure its existing impact on biodiversity, review its relevant policies and practices, and identify targeted interventions that are biodiversity-, water- and carbon-friendly.”
IUCN, uniquely composed of both government and civil society organisations, is the global authority on the status of the natural world and the measures needed to safeguard it.
Work is already well underway with industry experts and IUCN to develop a practical approach for monitoring biodiversity and implementing water stewardship in NMWE’s sector.
NMWE will measure its existing impact on biodiversity, review its relevant policies and practices, and identify targeted interventions that are biodiversity-, water- and carbon-friendly.
In launching this project, NMWE is embarking on a process to deliver on one of its voluntary commitments from the EU Code of Conduct on Responsible Food Business and Marketing Practices.
