Water Strategy


Our Water Strategy service is an enhancement of all Waterscan's services.
Tailored to individual client requirements, it provides a strategic and commercially
focused water management plan with defined targets and goals.

A Waterscan Water Strategy is ideal for those who are unsure where or how to start a water management strategy, or perhaps have a Corporate Social Responsibility target to achieve but are uncertain how to deliver the desired result.

Four major risks are assessed as part of your Water Strategy: Financial, Operational, Reputational and Regulatory. We work to first understand your business operation and then to devise a solution focused strategy that you can confidently present to the business.

Waterscan works with you in partnership to deliver the results you need. These results are recorded and proven with regular monthly reports of performance against target. We are so confident of success that we have a commercial fee structure that means we are rewarded on the basis of proven results and paid upon delivery of key project milestones.

We have delivered against aggressive CSR targets of 50% consumption reduction and created ten year strategies that
continue to deliver year on year.

Water Footprinting


Water is a fundamental part of all business operations - whether for basic employee use, processing and manufacturing, or for providing a customer service. Water shortage (which is a very real danger in many parts of the world due to unpredictable rainfall patterns and excessive human consumption) can severely hinder the success and growth of your company.

To reduce the volume of water being consumed by your business, it is essential to determine how much water is being used, where and when. This is known as ‘water footprinting’. Your company water footprint is the volume of freshwater consumed by your business through both the direct operations and the supply chain.

Waterscan Water Footprinting helps protect your business by identifying water risks throughout the entire production process of your products and services and accurately measuring consumption. We can quantify your company’s operational and supply chain water footprint to reduce water consumption and create a more sustainable platform for growth.

It is anticipated that future legislation will make water footprint reporting a mandatory requirement. Here at Waterscan, we already have the tools, skills and expertise to ensure your business is prepared.

Water Stewardship Certification


Certification provides independent approval of water management and operational performance for Water Stewardship. Unlike others, this standard aims to change behaviour and practices based on continuous improvement metrics.

Water Stewardship goes beyond water footprinting and is the use of water that is socially equitable, environmentally sustainable and economically beneficial; achieved through collaborative site and catchment based actions.

Waterscan will provide guidance on the four underlying principles namely, sustainable abstraction, management, governance and conservation and assess the risks. Utilising acknowledged methods we will evaluate the requirements and help you become a Water Steward in your river basin.

Whether you simply want to communicate your efforts in water management or achieve independent recognition, certification is an excellent tool to manage your environmental impact.

Compliance & Licensing


Waterscan will provide you with the comfort that your business is operating within the regulatory framework of the Water Act and protect you from any breach or contravention.
