SBL celebrates World Water Day with thousands benefitting its water projects

As the world commemorates World Water Day today, it is alarming to note that millions globally still lack access to clean and safe water.

However, in Tanzania, there is hope as the government continues to make significant strides towards its mission of providing clean and safe water to 85 percent of rural dwellers and 95 percent of urban residents by 2025.

For Serengeti Breweries Ltd. (SBL), water isn’t just a vital ingredient; it’s a precious communal asset facing escalating global pressures.

Embedded within its decade-long ‘Society 2030: Spirit of Progress’ Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) action plan is an unwavering commitment to spearheading sustainability from grain to glass.

As SBL contributes to this mission, the preservation of water for life remains a central aspect of its promise to foster a more inclusive and sustainable world.

SBL has taken action on social responsibility by initiating water projects that now provide clean and safe water to millions of Tanzanians. Since 2010, SBL has invested over TZS 2 billion in 25 water projects across the country through their life-saving Water for Life initiative.

This endeavor targets impoverished rural communities, where individuals often trek kilometers to access water from ponds and rivers. By collaborating with organizations like WaterAid and AMREF, SBL has ensured that even the most needy areas gain access to safe and clean water.

And according to SBL Corporate Relations Director John Wanyancha, “SBL’s commitment to community well-being is underscored by Water for Life, one of our four priority areas aimed at enhancing social welfare in Tanzania.”

Furthermore, Wanyancha stated that the company is implementing best-in-class water stewardship at its sites and operations. Given that over 90% of beer and 60% of spirits are made from water, reducing water consumption is paramount to water preservation. Over the last three years, SBL has reduced the water usage ratio by 15.6%, saving almost 80 million liters of water. Some of these initiatives include performance management, optimization projects, and fit-for-purpose asset care and technology.

In waste management, the commitment extends to the proper treatment of wastewater across its sites, where Dar es Salaam and Mwanza breweries operate effluent treatment plants, ensuring wastewater meets regulatory standards before discharge. In Moshi, wastewater is treated at a secondary facility run by the municipality. Additionally, SBL maintains a strict separation of stormwater and process water drainage systems, continuously monitoring the quality of discharged wastewater to ensure compliance with regulations.

Beyond its operations, SBL recognizes the importance of addressing water-related issues throughout its supply chain. From sourcing raw materials to manufacturing and distribution, water plays a critical role in its business processes.

SBL works closely with suppliers to promote responsible water management practices and ensure that water-intensive processes are conducted sustainably. By engaging with its supply chain partners, SBL aims to foster a culture of water stewardship and promote the adoption of best practices industry-wide.

In recognizing the value of safeguarding water resources for its operations, SBL has gone beyond advocating for policies and practices that promote sustainable water management on a broader scale and for a marginalized group.

SBL has been actively engaging with policymakers, industry stakeholders, and advocacy groups to raise awareness about water-related challenges and promote meaningful solutions. By leveraging their influence and expertise, SBL seeks to drive positive change and contribute to the global effort to safeguard water resources for future generations.

In an effort to bolster women’s access to essential water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services, SBL has intensified its initiatives in alignment with government efforts to enhance clean and safe water access in rural areas.

Through a collaboration with the Africa Community Advancement Initiative (AFRIcai), SBL led the Kabila Water Project in Magu district, Mwanza region, benefiting 11,927 individuals across five sub-villages: Ilambu, Mlimani, Igogo, Shuleni, and Majengo.

This project aims to eliminate water scarcity and improve community well-being. Additionally, SBL and AFRIcai provided comprehensive training covering entrepreneurship, financial management, and sanitation marketing to empower women in the region.

Meanwhile, the ongoing water project in Mwanza is slated for completion by early April, further enhancing access to clean water in the area.

One of the participants, Mary Mgaya from Ilambu sub-village, expressed her gratitude for the opportunity: “The training has opened my eyes to the importance of clean water and sanitation. Now, I am not just a beneficiary; I am an active contributor to the well-being of my community.”

Deputy Minister of Water, Eng. Maryprisca Mahundi, has commended Serengeti Breweries Limited (SBL) for its industrious support in bankrolling water projects that focus on the provision of free, clean, and safe water to Tanzanians in water-stressed rural areas, which complements the government’s efforts to increase the provision of clean and safe water in rural areas.
