The UK-wide search for inspiring water efficiency projects is on
14 May 2012Waterwise and the Environment Agency launch the UK Water Efficiency Awards 2012
Businesses that save water save money, that’s the message from the Environment Agency and Waterwise, supported by Bosch and Methven, as they launch the 6th Water Efficiency Awards – a biannual competition that celebrates the achievements of public, private and third sector organisations in making the UK more water efficient.
Categories include innovation, Landscape and Gardening, Community-led Initiative, Business and Industry and more.
Businesses in the UK currently use about 9.8billion cubic litres of water a day – but estimates show that we could be using up to a third less – saving around £10million every day. And with more frequent droughts, climate change and population growth threatening to reduce the amount of water available in the UK, organisations that are saving water now are putting themselves a step ahead of their competitors, saving money, and preparing for the future.
Entrance to the awards is now open until the end of June 2012, and the Environment Agency and Waterwise, along with Headline Supporters Bosch and Methven, are looking for entries from any business or organisation that has taken steps to improve their own water efficiency, or have helped other to reduce their water use.
This year we are seeking applications from all over the UK to find the most innovative, effective and inspiring projects.
