Water is one of our most important, finite resources on our planet, and is key to sustaining life, so we understand just how vital it is to reduce consumption. The world’s population is growing like never before, and as time goes on, there will be an even greater strain to find water. Smart usage goes beyond just turning off faucets and fixing leaks, and we’re looking at every aspect of our consumption.
The GOJO Water Sustainability Goal
By utilizing water-saving strategies like reducing cycle time on drum and bucket washers, treating water with reverse osmosis for re-use floor scrubbers, improving the reverse osmosis system for increased efficiency, and modifying our cleaning and sanitization processes to reduce water consumption, we have significantly lowered the amount of water we use on a daily basis.
Not only did we meet our 30 percent reduction goal, we exceeded it two years early. In 2013, GOJO showed a 40 percent reduction in water consumption, which proved our strategies to be extremely effective in the effort to save one of our most precious resources.
Protecting Water Quality
Around the world, water is a precious resource. And at GOJO, aside from using as little as possible, we realize that some areas simply can’t access fresh water the way we can. That’s why PURELL® Advanced Instant Hand Sanitizer is recognized by Professor Didier Pittet, the hospital epidemiologist at the University of Geneva Hospital and Clinics as being a viable solution to hand hygiene in healthcare environments that don’t have access to clean water.
