Carlsberg Group is now focused on providing clean drinking water to people in Sundarban

Carlsberg Group is now focused on providing clean drinking water to people in Sundarban

To create a clean drinking water facility for a town in India, the Carlsberg group has made an announcement that it is joining hands with Desolenator. The technology that is being used for this effort is sustainable, and it is all set to meet the clean water demand of almost 4000 people in Sundarban, West Bengal. Due to water scarcity and climate change, the Sundarban town was severely affected. Currently, due to the ongoing pandemic and repercussion from the Amphan cyclone, people living in that region are forced to send water to some areas in a truck. The new initiative to desalinate the water will be completed by 2021, and it is expected to generate almost 20k liters of water every day using the power of sun and water.

 This project will have a community-based distribution model designed in partnership with Strathclyde University and WaterAid. The new project will also promote women empowerment by giving them employment opportunities. Carlsberg’s effort in this initiative is to eliminate the water wastage that is coming out of its breweries, and by 2030 the company wants to eliminate water wastage and protect the shared water resources completely. Climate change is responsible for irregular weather patterns and more extreme events. Only new initiatives can help people improve sustainability.
