Independent review of the costs and benefits of water labelling options in the UK – Summary Report

  back to resources page

This summary report for the project Independent review of the costs and benefits of water labelling options in the UK concludes that a government-led mandatory scheme linked to building regulations and minimum standards is projected to reduce per capita water consumption by 6.3 litres per day within 10 years, rising to a saving of 31.4 litres per day after 25 years. This would contribute significantly to UK targets for reduction in water consumption. If water labelling is to contribute to those targets, then Scenario 2 should be the primary option for further consideration.
