La Vie Limited Liability’s plant in Long An Province has been certified as meeting the Alliance for Water Stewardship standard, a global benchmark for responsible water stewardship across social, environmental and economic criteria.

The AWS Standard covers a wide variety of watershed issues, including the sustainable water balance, water quality and shared water challenges within the region where a facility is located.

The conformity of sites implementing the standard is verified by third-party auditors prior to certification. Achieving AWS certification includes a series of actions, criteria and indicators for how to manage water both at the factory level as well as outside a site.

The AWS Standard was among the important programmes that Nestle Waters, which owns La Vie, has committed to implement at its facilities, the company said in a press release.

Nguyen Thi Kim Hoang, external affairs director of La Vie Limited for the southern region, said: “Exploiting and using water resources effectively is one of the commitments of La Vie and the Nestle Waters Group globally.”

La Vie has belonged to Nestle since 1992. More than 15 Nestle Waters facilities in the world have achieved AWS certification. — VNS
