As fresh water increasingly becomes a scarce resource the need for businesses to seriously consider the economic and environmental impact of their water footprint increases in tandem. At H20 Building Services we help businesses to identify the scale of their water footprint and make significant changes to their water management resolving their environmental impact and delivering cost efficiency.
What is a Water Footprint?
A water footprint is the amount of fresh water that is used both indirectly in the running of a company’s supply chain as well as directly in the production and manufacturing of a product or service.
Establishing the water footprint of your business is relevant for any business sector but is especially prevalent for those who are producing consumer goods and services.
Advice for reducing your businesses water footprint
There are numerous steps that businesses can take in order to reduce the impact of their water footprint:
- Leak Detection Program – In a large number of cases a leak detection program can be the solution for delivering great results for reducing a company’s water footprint particularly in the case of older plants and buildings. At H²0 Building Services we are experts in leak detection utilising a host of equipment and techniques to identify, detect and repair any issues that arise.
- Water Audit – Businesses can also have a water audit conducted of their premises water bills. The water audit analyses the current water usage which will then identify areas of improvement for the strategic use of water in the business. Using water more effectively will deliver both a reduced water footprint and cost savings.
- Install Water Saving Utilities
- Smart Metering – Using a smart reader or an Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) to monitor consumption enables the identification of any water issues. At H²0 Building Services we can install an AMR onto your water company revenue meter helping to pro-actively monitor and resolve issues and to identify and implement improvements to your water system to ultimately reduce your water footprint.
