In the current climate of cost cutting and streamlining, reducing water usage makes great business sense. Quite simply, it can save your business a lot of money. But the benefits don’t stop there; along with cutting costs, being business water efficient can enhance your business reputation and reduce your carbon footprint.

From the very beginning, cutting business water usage automatically reduces your direct business water charges. Additionally, if you reduce your business water use, you will directly reduce the amount of wastewater your business generates, bringing a double benefit to your bottom line.

Reducing business water usage also relieves pressure on the water network, reducing your businesses carbon footprint. And if that wasn’t enough, preserving our natural resources also supports the social responsibility efforts of your business, helping to protect the environment for future generations to enjoy. Communicating all these wonderful efforts your customers can improve brand favourability by fostering a positive image of sustainability and commitment to the local community.

Becoming business water efficient is great in theory, but in practice, many businesses just don’t know where to start. The good news is that business water efficiency can begin with just a few focused steps. There are many ways that Castle Water can help you to reduce business water use, minimise effluent and implement business water saving techniques. In the meantime, you can develop and implement a simple business water efficiency programme. Here’s a few easy ways to get started.

7 steps to improve your business water efficiency

  • Engage all your employees in your water saving efforts.
  • Identify how much your business is paying in water and wastewater charges.
  • Evaluate what parts of your business use water – and how much.
  • Identify ways to reduce water use and minimise effluent generation.
  • Make a list of realistic water saving techniques and start by implementing the easy ones first.
  • Continue to review and evaluate the improvements your business has made.
  • Communicate success to all staff to maintain efficiency and commitment.

For a water efficiency programme to be effective, engagement is key. Involving everyone in your business will encourage ownership and dramatically increase the likelihood of success. With everyone working towards the same goal, efficiencies are easier to identify, and water usage reduction becomes more consistent. Cost savings will inevitably follow, delivering tangible, cost cutting benefits that can inspire staff to maintain their water-saving practises.

By improving business water efficiency you can achieve real benefits, save money, reduce your carbon footprint and preserve natural resources for future generations. What’s not to like?!
