Local water management plans
Gränges manages water-related aspects based on local circumstances as the company’s production sites are located in areas with various water stress and risks. Input from the World Resources Institute’s Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas shows that the sites in Finspång and Newport are located in areas with low-to medium risk, Huntingdon and Salisbury sites in medium-to-high risk, and Shanghai in a high-risk area. No water sources are considered to be significantly affected by the water withdrawal or discharge from Gränges’ operations.
As water-related aspects and risks are managed based on local circumstances, Gränges works to implement local water management plans in all its locations. These plans include local targets and activities to address water-related impacts, such as water efficiency improvements, quality of effluent discharge, conservation activities, and local stakeholder engagement. In 2020, Gränges implemented local water management plans in two sites: Finspång and Shanghai.
Gränges also includes water risks when conducting supplier sustainability assessments.
Note: All numbers exclude Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy.
