Water You Waiting For?

Like energy, much of the water wastage in a business is unconscious. By focusing on water usage and actions to reduce waste, you can significantly reduce water usage in your business.  

Simple Tips for Getting Started: 

  • Get to know your existing water usage. Learn how to read your water bills and start to keep a record of water usage in order to measure your progress.  
  • Talk to your team: Make colleagues aware of the scarcity of water and the benefits of conservation. Put up signs in staff kitchens or toilets that remind people to turn off taps or use low flush options. 
  • Conduct a water audit: identify processes or areas of your business where water is used and examine whether small changes would help to reduce usage.
