Water consumption

Water is an important resource for Lindt & Sprüngli. We use it as a fluid for heat exchange throughout the process, for the washing of molds, hygienic requirements such as hand washing, and for sanitary facilities. We continuously monitor and analyze the use of water and the output of wastewater in the production process. The company's goal is to continue reducing the water consumption per ton produced by an average of 2 % over the coming years.

Water Consumption-Lindt & Sprüngli

For cooling, we eliminated almost all open systems and went to closed loop systems. In addition, many plants revised and optimized cold and hot water circuits. Lindt & Sprüngli continuously improves its environmental impact whenever we modernize parts of the operations.

In recent years, Lindt & Sprüngli production companies reduced their water consumption significantly. For our latest water consumption figures, please see our sustainability report.
