Efforts to Reduce Water Usage

Allstate’s total water use at our Home Office comes from eight private water wells located on our property. In 2011, withdrawals of water from these wells totaled 63,763,400 gallons — a reduction of nearly 7 million gallons (9.8 percent) from 2010.

Most of our water, approximately 75 percent, is used for drinking, bathrooms and kitchens. The rest is used mostly to operate cooling towers for our building heating systems.

Allstate has established programs to reduce water consumption, identify water-saving opportunities and install water-saving devices where appropriate.

Our 250-acre Home Office campus also uses storm water retention ponds, making it nearly 100 percent self-sufficient for landscape irrigation purposes.
