the detail behind our challenge
AB Sugar has a strong history of doing the right thing and is committed to cutting both water use and carbon emissions in its supply chain. Every year we look to abstract less water so that every bag of sugar we make uses less of the world’s resources, such as water.
We have come a long way in making improvements, but we want to go further. That is why, as part of our 2030 commitments, we have pledged to cut our end-to-end supply chain water use and carbon emissions by 30%, but we can’t do this alone. Our aim is that by creating The Innovate Irrigation Challenge, we have an exciting opportunity to draw on ideas from all over the world to help reduce water loss in sugar and beyond.
The question we posed with this Challenge was:
"How do you stop irrigation water losses (evaporation/leaks etc) in agriculture?"
We are delighted with the level of interest in the Challenge; receiving over 90 registrations and a further 28 submissions from individuals across the world.
