Water For People and Absolut Elyx are on a five-year mission to provide access to safe water to over 100,000 people worldwide. Although water is the foundation of both our organizations, it's actually our shared commitment to integrity, creativity, and sustainability that brought us together. This five-year movement will bring change, not just for one day or even one year, but for generations to come.
Absolut Elyx is taking a bold step to transform the spirits industry by integrating philanthropy into its business model. Water is essential to its craft (fun fact: water makes up more than half the contents of a bottle of vodka), and by giving back to Water For People, Absolut Elyx is helping drive awareness to the global water crisis.
The Absolut Company has a long-standing commitment to sustainability, conservation, and the environment. On top of that, the vodka makers at Absolut Elyx are constantly searching for new processes to further reduce the distillery's water and carbon footprints.Learn more about Elyx
In July 2015, the Absolut Elyx team traveled to Peru with Water For People to experience firsthand all the incredible work being done to bring safe water services to the people in the district of Cascas.
The partnership to date has made a huge impact, providing more than 31,000 people with safe water, which equals 2.3 million liters donated. That translates to a better life for families, entrepreneurs, and community members around the world.
Absolut Elyx is supporting Water For People’s Everyone Forever initiative financially in several ways.
