As part of our goal to do right by the planet, we’re committed to supporting the development of sustainable agriculture. Let’s take a look at some of the initiatives we’re involved with.
At Volvic, in partnership with CEPIV, we’re financially and technically supporting farmers in our source area to help them turn to more environmentally-friendly agricultural practices, which are key to ensuring the quality of the catchment area and its surroundings. The idea is to protect our source and to involve local farmers, whose long-term commitment to sustainable famring and promoting the use of organic techniques is crucial. So far, two farms in the area have successfully been certified as organic.
We’re keen to protect our biodiversity, reduce our carbon emissions and enhance the soil around our bottling site. That’s why we’ve been supporting eco-pasturage since 2019, thanks to our partner Sauvarie with a mix of 25 local breeds of donkeys, goats and sheep all grazing the land around our site. Each of these animal types feeds on different plants, so they all have a role to play in keeping this space clean.
In collaboration with CeCler, we want to raise awareness of the importance of regenerative agriculture, so we’ve set ourselves a target of educating 5,000 people a year, as well as training 80 refugees each year to help them build a better life. Our Volvic garden provides 4000m2 of shared space to the communities around it, using innovative regenerative agriculture and permaculture techniques.
