We, Consolidated Shipping Services are proud to be a WASH Pledge signatory and commit to implementing access to safe Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) for all our employees in all of our premises. Under the pledge, we also commit to addressing WASH across our value chain, including amongst our suppliers, as well as in the communities that surround our workplaces and/or where our employees live.

Access to WASH is a fundamental human right and key to realizing the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Today, over 785 million people are still without access to safe drinking water and estimate 4.2 billion lack access to safely managed sanitation services. The WASH Pledge is an initiative created by the WBCSD (World Business Council for Sustainable Development), to engage companies to contribute to the implementation of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal No 6 (for all people to have access to safe water and sanitation by 2030).

“As businesses, we can lead the way to significantly increase the number of people to have access to safe, affordable and sustainable drinking water, sanitation and hygiene. We call on all businesses and stakeholders to join this commitment to address one of the most pressing public health challenges of our time. We look forward to promoting social, environmental and economic well-being through our commitment to the WASH Pledge.

We would like to thank our client Xylem and WBCSD (World Business Council for Sustainable Development) for inviting us to be a part of this and hope to encourage others to participate as well. Water is our most valuable commodity on this planet and being responsible for this precious commodity is high on our priority list.” commented Anitha – GM CHR Networks & Special Projects.
