Water is life

Water is the basis of our business. For this reason, we strive for careful use of natural resources throughout all departments. BUND, the German Association for Environmental Protection and Nature Conservation, is campaigning for the water quality of rivers. In 2011, we supported BUND with a donation of 10,000 Euro.

To ensure that the source for our tap and drinking water remains intact in future as well, BRITA supports BUND (Bund für Umwelt und Naturschutz e.V. - German Association for Environmental Protection and Nature Conservation). 

 

Commitment

For many years, BUND has been campaigning to protect the Elbe as one of the last semi-natural rivers in Central Europe: It has provided more maximum flood areas so that alluvial forests and meadows are flooded in high water periods, rather than villages and cities. BUND receives and develops typical habitats for plants and animals of the Elbe and its water meadows.

In order to influence the European Union and others, and to accomplish a great deal in favour of the environment, BUND has become a member of Friends of the Earth, an international environmental protection network.
