Companies worldwide identify water issues as a serious business concern. Water is essential for a range of industrial processes, support functions, facility operations, and as an ingredient for many products. Water use is increasing faster than population growth, and this can lead to water-related conflicts. Corporations are beginning to recognize the role they play in tackling water resource challenges, and companies are responding by measuring, reporting, and reducing their water use.
Water is required in extensive quantities to produce goods ranging from food products to silicon chips. Therefore, it is both economical and environmentally beneficial for everyone to be water smart. Businesses can replace inefficient equipment and make changes in operations to save water. Replacing old fixtures, upgrading irrigation systems, and looking for options to re-use water can have a major effect. Choosing green building practices can also help businesses be water smart.
