Diversey Makes Value and Quality its Key Focus for World Water Day

By: Diversey on 26 March 2021



Diversey - the leading global hygiene and cleaning company – is marking World Water Day by reaffirming its commitment to a total approach to water management, by emphasising the sustainability benefits of managing hygiene and water quality together as a complete system.


Water Reduction without Compromise

On a day that promotes worldwide reflection on water’s true value and how this vital resource can be better protected, Diversey is instigating a focus on water throughout its operations. * This is designed to highlight to its customers in the Food and Beverage (F&B) sector - where water is fundamental to successful and efficient production – that the right approach concentrates on managing total water usage within a facility while optimising all the aspects involved.


Water Treatment in a Post-Pandemic World

Boniface Kariuki, Global Leader Water Treatment Solutions Diversey F&B, states: “As food and beverage businesses around the globe begin to reassess their priorities in a post-pandemic world, Diversey considers it essential to be responsive to this shift as well as responsible in our actions. By championing the importance of water, we are responding to resource, market, safety and environmental challenges by structurally and strategically ensuring we are able to meet our customer’s needs both now and in the future. Our recent partnership agreement with Solenis adds process, functional and water treatment chemistries to our globally acknowledged expertise. Integrating these water management benefits with our world-class hygiene for a complete solution, all available at one single point of contact, is driving the efficiencies which will make the difference to productivity and profitability in our customer’s increasingly competitive markets.”


Expertise and Applications that Combine to Add Value

Diversey’s complete solution begins with a re-evaluation of water usage on site - in heating, cooling, filtration and hygiene processes – to optimise quality, reduce consumption, and avoid corrosion and scale that adversely impacts the efficiency of production. The combination of expertise, chemistry and technical support identifies issues and opportunities to increase value, while specialist tools help optimise total water use and reduce waste, along with the sustainability footprint of its customers.


Optimised Efficiency Good for Business and the Planet

Through a philosophy that looks to discover and solve water quality issues tied to key trends and through identifying customer’s main goals, Diversey is able to deliver superior production efficiency, reduce energy and water consumption, and drive consistent quality. The approach also realises returns on asset investment, reduced total cost of ownership, while improving compliance with regulatory and environmental standards, food and employee safety, and in ultimately protecting life.

“With the challenges of the last year in mind, companies need to target efficiencies to remain competitive and position themselves for the rebound as economies grow. Our dedicated focus on the food, beverage, dairy, and life sciences industries delivers additional value in water management that significantly contributes to these ambitions. This involves clearly articulating an approach on water, where their positioning or lack of, can have major repercussions for goodwill toward their products and the integrity of their brand; in addition to an impact on costs, sustainability and future investment,” concludes Boniface.

*A new series of blogs explains Diversey’s approach and the many tools it has at its disposal to ensure its customers optimise their use of water – the first of these can be viewed here.
