We are delighted to have been awarded the Waterwise Checkmark. We are passionate about water efficiency and strongly believe that as part of our commitment to help our customers to use water wisely, we need to be able to practice what we preach. Over the years we have introduced a raft of measures to ensure that our offices are as water efficient as possible. We welcomed the opportunity to verify our efforts through Waterwise’s checkmark and would encourage other businesses to do the same”

Why obtain a checkmark for your office?

We are facing greater pressure on water resources in the UK due to climate change, population growth and the need to protect the environment. A report by the National Infrastructure Commission set out a 1 in 4 chance over the next 30 years that large numbers of households and businesses will have water supplies cut off for an extended period of time. It estimated the economic impact of severe restrictions in England at between £25 and £40 billion.

Waterwise is an independent, not-for-profit organisation with the vision that water will be used wisely, every day, everywhere. We developed the Water Checkmark to improve water use by products, appliances and in a range of business settings.

Offices are a key area where we can reduce water use. On average water savings
from simple water efficiency measures could be between 30% and 67% (based on Thames Water Smarter Business Visit Programme).


Attaining the Checkmark for your office can help can help you demonstrate to staff, stakeholders and customers your sustainability credentials.
