HINDUSTAN UNILEVER FOUNDATION (HUF)

Water is a resource that we all share as humanity. The onus of securing it rests on everyone. HUF believes that informed intent and shared purpose can galvanise farmers, Panchayats, NGOs, private sector and government to achieve Water for All.

OUR APPROACH

HUF’s “Water for Public Good” programme supports large scale action on water conservation, governance and judicious water use. Rural India has a significant water footprint. The Foundation partners with non-profit organisations working with rural communities across India’s diverse hydrogeological zones.  Three key pillars define our work

  • KNOW MORE

    Build water numeracy to help quantify availability, budget, and allocate water use

  • SAVE MORE

    Promote scientific citizen-led water conservation and governance efforts

  • USE LESS

    Drive behaviour change for responsible water use in agriculture

IMPACT

Water influences environmental, economic and social impact indicators. HUF programmes deliver impact on connected outcomes that are independently assured each year.
