Stonegate Pub Company and Heineken UK Ltd have applied for Self-Supply licences for water and sewerage services.

The companies will join hospitality and drinks giants Greene King, Whitbread, Marston’s and Coca-Cola Europacific Partners in choosing the Self-Supply approach to optimising water stewardship.

Stonegate and Heineken have entered into partnership agreements with Waterscan to facilitate their applications. Waterscan will act as their managing agent and provide technical support and services (including meter reading, CMOS transactions, wholesaler management and finding further water efficiency savings) while the companies themselves will build direct relationships with wholesalers and pay water and sewerage charges through the settlement process. A Self-Supply licence also grants them access to be an active participant in the market, in turn fuelling innovation and helping to drive down water consumption and costs.

“For Stonegate and Heineken, Self-Supply is a chance to build on the works they have already undertaken in implementing water cost and consumption controls and really take their efforts to the next level. With water being such a key component in their business operations, any opportunity to act on this precious resource should be embraced. Self-Supply offers this opportunity, and we very much look forward to demonstrating how it can bring about positive impacts to their sustainability and financial agendas.”

Neil Pendle, Managing Director at Waterscan
