Project Water Strategy for consumption reduction
Location Nationwide
Classification Water Management / Water Strategy
Sector Pub & Restaurant

Overview

Waterscan was engaged to deliver significant efficiencies in water consumption and support enhanced social responsibility through delivery of a water strategy in partnership with Greene King. Once the baseline consumption was established a water consumption reduction target of 12% by end of financial year 2014/2015 versus a 2012 baseline was set, equating to just under 172,000m3.
A key driver for taking the steps to establish a water strategy and focus on water reduction was Greene King’s CSR initiative which was launched to drive social responsibility engagement both internally and across the Spirit supplier base.

Results

12.13%  Reduction in total usage compared to a 2012 baseline

£914,000  Total savings in excess of £914,000

173,000m3  Over 173,000m3 of water saved, the equivalent to approximately 304 million pints

149  Water audits of high consuming pubs completed

58,000m3 Approximate amount of water saved due to leak identification and rectification

The project

Through a rigorous process of obtaining data and inputting this into Waterline©, a unique online water management system, it was possible to establish a clear picture of performance, the baseline data and conduct benchmarking to identify high consuming sites. Risks and opportunities were then assessed prior to the provisional goal and scope of the project being defined. After these initial stages, the specific business and operational scenarios were examined to evaluate the latest technologies and areas where a reduction in consumption was viable. Following this, the strategy was devised, implemented and monitored.

Reductions in water usage were achieved across the estate through various means including;

  • Identification of leaks on the supply pipe and on internal pipework
  • Resolving shared supply
  • Fixing leaking water storage tanks
  • Replacing faulty taps
  • Problems with Water Management Systems (Urinal Controls) and toilets were addressed.

QuoteGreene King

”Greene King initially engaged Waterscan on a bill validation project. Whilst delivering an excellent financial result, we were particularly impressed with the expertise and market insight which the Waterscan team brought to the project.

We now work together in partnership and have much better management of water in our business. The comprehensive strategic approach delivers against defined annual targets and performance is tracked to ensure success. As a result our data has improved dramatically and leaves us well placed ahead of market deregulation in 2017.”
