Charity Support

We believe that supporting water charities worldwide is a vital part of our company today, and a plan for our futures tomorrow. The concept of water stress is relatively simple: According to the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, it applies to situations where there is not enough water for all uses, whether agricultural, industrial or domestic. Defining thresholds for stress in terms of available water per capita is more complex, however, entailing assumptions about water use and its efficiency. Nevertheless, it has been proposed that when annual per capita renewable freshwater availability is less than 1,700 cubic meters, countries begin to experience periodic or regular water stress. Below 1,000 cubic meters, water scarcity begins to hamper economic development and human health and well-being.

We currently support the following charitable organisations and ask others do the same. We believe it is in the interests of all of our futures.

 

Quality commitment

Nestlé Waters Powwow is a member of the UK British Water Cooler Association (BWCA) and also the European Point-of-use Drinking Water Association (EPDWA). Membership of both organisations requires us to conform to the highest standards of local and European quality and hygiene standards.

Each of our bottling centres is subject to annual inspections to ensure they meet local and European standards for bottled water. We currently hold 2 Gold Awards as a result of the excellent results from the latest independent inspections.

Our in-house team of microbiologists perform rigorous testing on a daily basis to ensure POWWOW water always reaches you in perfect condition.

The first Hampshire Water Festival took place in August 2015 in Winchester and was a great success with 10,000 visitors.

The Hampshire Water Partnership was formed in 2001 and is composed of a wide range of organisations who are stakeholders in water in Hampshire. Its main aim is to ensure the long term future of Hampshire’s rivers, aquifers and wetlands for people and wildlife. see www.hampshirewaterfestival.co.uk. The Hampshire Water Partnership was established in 1999 to foster increased understanding and knowledge-sharing about Hampshire’s water environments and the issues facing rivers, wetlands and aquifers. It comprises private, public and voluntary bodies who have a role or interest in the sustainable management of this unique water environment. The Partnership has no executive powers, but provides a forum for closer working relationships, information dissemination, and discussion on topical issues.
