Water resources are under increasing pressure from climate change, population growth and the need to protect the environment. This has been recognised as we are seeing increasing ambition to reduce per capita consumption by government, regulators and water companies. Waterwise’s Water Efficiency Strategy for the UK has helped drive this ambition and provide the evidence to support policy changes.
The Strategy’s vision is a UK in which all people, homes and businesses are water-efficient.
This summary provides highlights from Year 1, priorities for year 2 and a summary infographic for several themes of the Strategy. For more information, please read the full Year 1 report.
