Water: Preserving a Natural Resource

As a result of urban development, growing industrialization, and large-scale irrigation, ever-increasing amounts of water are needed. Wastewater treatment, drinking water production, and industrial water recycling have therefore become essential to ensure the sustainable development of the world and the well-being of the planet’s population. Therefore, effective solutions and responses tailored to match individual operating conditions are needed.

SNF has maintained a strong position in industrial water treatment since the company was founded in 1978. To meet the needs of the growing market, we have developed a product line of over 1,000 items and are constantly expanding.

Sustainable Development

SNF aims to be a key player in the water treatment sector and all related applications.  The many initiatives we have undertaken in recent years to promote Sustainable Development, particularly in the environmental, social, and economic fields (energy balance sheet, carbon balance sheet, sustainable development report, social balance sheet, etc.), are closely related to our business activities

SNF is guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  The SNF Group has developed a range of over one thousand products, in keeping with its goal to promote responsible chemistry and improve the quality of life for the entire population of the world.

Products manufactured by SNF play a crucial role in protecting the environment, saving energy, and ensuring access to essential raw materials, and have gradually integrated the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact into its policies.

SNF is also aiming to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 and reduce carbon intensity by 30% and reduce water intensity by 20% by 2030.
