South West Water



South West Water Certification Scheme


South West Water has become the first water company in England to launch a new certification scheme, aimed at recognising businesses that take steps to improve their water efficiency. The certificate will be awarded at basic, comprehensive and exceptional levels to recognise the water efficiency standard attained by the business.

Currently the business sector accounts for 1/3 of the total water use within the UK. This certification scheme will therefore work as an incentive to businesses that fall in the South West Water region to develop water conservation practices. Not only can these practices save the business up to 30% on their water bill, but will also save them money on their energy bills and will help to achieve a long term sustainable supply and protect our environment.
