Pursat, Cambodia. Around four in five people lack essential access to safely managed water in rural Cambodia (Source: WHO/Unicef). Cambrew Ltd, our local Cambodian brewery, has partnered with social enterprise TapEffect to bring safe drinking water to thousands of Cambodians.
TapEffect is working with communities in a remote rural area of Pursat province to establish a new water supply and associated infrastructure that will provide 6,800 people with access to potable water straight from the tap in homes, schools, referral hospitals and businesses.

By 2025, the project is expected to deliver 7 million litres of water per month, yielding around 25% of the water needed to replenish consumption at our brewery in Sihanoukville. The system is expected to operate for more than 20 years.
The holistic project will include:

The partnership supports our global commitment to safeguard shared water resources in high-risk areas.
Our Swiss beer brand Feldschlösschen is committed to the renaturation, purification and protection of the lakes and rivers that play a vital role in Switzerland’s ecosystems and beautiful landscape.
Developing a sustainable tomorrow can only happen together. In 2019 we announced an ambitious project at our Fredericia brewery, the result of public-private partnership with DRIP in Denmark. It will use innovative water recycling technology to reuse 90% of process water, providing learnings for our other wastewater treatments around the world.
In 2020, we put our commitment to safeguard shared water resources into action – bringing clean water at the turn of a tap to almost 20,000 people in Vietnam.
