Working with companies to correct environmental issues can be daunting. Where to start?
Well, changes can be made by taking a page from other companies. Dole Foods realized they had to make changes to maintain a market claim. So, they did. Now, Dole has ultrasonic sensors, which help reduce the amount of water by up to 380,000 liters (100,385 gallons) daily.
Tanneries can make many changes that will allow for much the same results.
Another way to help preserve the water in and around the tanneries would be to join some project like the Water Footprint Network (WFN). This is a multi-stakeholder initiative aimed at promoting sustainable, fair and efficient use of fresh water resources. As a global partner network, the WFN exchanges best practices for reducing water usage and also defines common methodologies to carry out Water Footprint assessments.(dolecrs.com).
