Protecting our sources

Our dedication to sustainable water resources and fruit farms.

At S.Pellegrino we take tangible steps to preserve the water sources and their natural environment, and we are dedicated to continuously protecting and nurturing them. Our commitment is to lead the regeneration of the local water cycle to help create a positive water impact where we operate, enabling local watersheds to capture more water than we use in our bottling operations.

We act to preserve water purity

S.Pellegrino natural mineral water emerges from sources in the Italian Alps, pure and untouched by man. It is bottled directly at the source as required by law. We carry out 600 quality tests every day, to ensure S.Pellegrino water always reaches your table with the same unmistakable taste.

Protecting our water

We are certified by leading organisations

Since 2020, the S.Pellegrino site in San Pellegrino Terme (near Bergamo, Italy) has been Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) certified.

AWS is the internationally recognized standard for the sustainable management of water as a shared resource. It focuses on maintaining good water qualityensuring the quantity of water extracted is sustainableprotecting critical areas in the water basin, and improving access to water, sanitation and hygiene.

AWS is a benchmark for continuously improving the way we look after the natural resources that are so precious to us. 

Alliance for Water Stewardship

At the heart of our Sanpellegrino Italian Sparkling Drinks are fresh fruits, the source of our authentic Mediterranean taste. Our goal is to sustain regenerative agricultural practices, working with the fruit farms to protect the health of the plants and support the local communities.

We safeguard the future of fruits

The citrus fruits we use in our Italian Sparkling Drinks are all grown under the Mediterranean sun: the oranges for our Aranciata come exclusively from Sicily and Calabria, and the lemons for our Limonata from Sicilian citrus groves. We maintain strong relationships with the farms that supply them, where pruning and harvesting are carried out in such a way as to safeguard the health of the plant and the quality of the product.

Supporting sustainable farming

We support sustainable farming

We know how important it is to safeguard the environment and the local communities in which the iconic ingredients we use grow. We are working with the consultancy company Carbonsink to analyse how regenerative agricultural practices could impact the supply chain for the citruses we use. Regenerative agriculture is a farming system centred around agronomic principles that aims to protect and restore natural resources: primarily soil, but also water and biodiversity. It also aims to improve soil health and soil fertility, at the same time as promoting the capture of carbon (i.e. greenhouse gas emissions) in soils and plant biomass.
