In the UK, demand for water is at risk of outstripping supply.

Universities can play an important role in conserving water supplies by acting to reduce water consumption on their estates. The importance of tackling these challenges is highlighted by the People and Planet University League.

But water is a complex resource that requires careful management and planning. Improving your water reduction score requires an integrated approach looking at all of the water needs in your university.

Our unique services focus on your water journey, whether you are looking for a site audit to establish a baseline of your water needs, or a more complex solution using the information and data available to improve sustainable water management.
