Our water is The Sustainable Choice™

Understanding Sustainability

What is Sustainability?

Sustainability is the ability to exist and develop without depleting natural resources for the future.

Sustainability is really all about meeting present-day needs while ensuring future generations can meet their needs using finite resources, without harming the present. Of course, this requires social responsibility, protecting the environment and achieving balance in human and natural systems, which can be complex.

OUR Sustainable Future

Why is Sustainability Important?

There are many benefits to sustainability, both short-term and long-term. We cannot maintain our Earth’s ecosystems or continue to function as we do if more sustainable choices are not made. If harmful processes are maintained with no change, it is likely that we suffer shortages in critical areas such as fossil fuels, several animal species will become extinct, and the atmosphere will be affected. Clean air and nontoxic atmospheric conditions, growth of resources that can be relied upon, and water quality and cleanliness, are all benefits of sustainability.

Sustainability offers both present and future advantages. Failing to implement responsible practices could jeopardize our ecosystems, deplete vital resources, and harm different species, including damage to the atmosphere. Clean air, reliable resources, and water quality are all benefits of incorporating sustainable resources and practices.

Powering Progress with Renewable Energy

ArubaWater’s Approach

At the same time, the energy needed for water production in Aruba increasingly comes from renewable sources. Operations in Aruba currently utilize about 18% percent energy generated from renewable sources comprised of wind and solar sources. That number is climbing quickly as new initiatives are being put into place.

The envisioned future of the Island of Aruba is to be cleaner, greener and fuel oil free. Aruba is extremely well suited to developing renewable resources including wind, solar, hydroelectric and other alternatives. Its location in the Caribbean provides more than ample sunlight and excellent access to constant trade winds. Perhaps more important than these factors is the nation’s deep commitment to the environment. The Aruban government, working with all stakeholders, has set a mandate to reach or exceed environmental standards that follow the Paris Accord by the year 2030.

 Ultimately, the goal is to continuously reduce reliance on conventional energy methods to achieve 100% reliance on renewable energy by the year 2050.

E kaminda pa bai Riba!


Our vision for sustainability goes far beyond our source water. That’s why the processes used in all facets of our operations – from water collection and processing to packaging and distribution – are as efficient as they can be at present with constant improvement through innovation.


Our approach begins with our source: water collected from the ocean provides a truly renewable water source and eliminates the need to deplete other precious water resources such as wells, aquifers, rivers, springs, or finite water sources.

Innovative Solutions

Of course, producing desalinated water requires energy. That’s where Aruba offers an effective strategy based on efficiency at the water processing source. Our water provider uses ultra-high efficiency RECIP engines in the desalination process. This significantly reduces the energy required by about 30% over legacy desalination systems. It also lowers the environmental impact of the process.

Part of a Circular Economy

As part of our move toward a sustainable solution, ArubaWater™ has adopted packaging alternatives that contribute to a circular economy. This means that all of our products use recycled and recyclable materials where possible, and adopt efficiencies that reduce waste, emissions and energy requirements in manufacture and transport.

Beginning in 2024, all of our products use 100% RPET recycled plastic in the manufacture of our bottles. Our RPET plastic is ethically sourced from existing global waste streams and certified as 100% recycled in a closed custody chain.

The use of the 100% RPET recycled plastic helps prevent existing plastic from ending up in waste streams such as landfills or the ocean. The plastic, boxes and packing materials we use are all 100% recyclable.

Our water is shipped for export in containers that normally arrive in Aruba full of cargo but travel to their source empty. As a small island nation, Aruba does not generally manufacture or develop products for export. By utilizing these otherwise empty containers for transport of our products to global markets, we can help offset fuel usage and reduce emissions.

Throughout our company, ArubaWater™ is committed to leading with innovations in our approach to the sustainable future of our product and our contribution to the environment. We continue to research, pipeline, and add new and better approaches all the time. We believe we are on a path to help transform eco-alternatives in drinking water –from utilizing a sustainable water source and alternative energy, to attaining carbon neutrality and supporting a circular economy.

Environmental Impact

ArubaWater Corp. and our suppliers are dedicated to upholding environmentally sustainable practices, and as such, great care is applied in our desalination process. The process uses the most advanced and innovative techniques to ensure minimal impact on the surrounding ecosystem. By utilizing cutting-edge technology and continuously improving our methods, we prioritize the conservation of our natural resources.
