Freshwater is our most precious resource, essential to all life on Earth. Yet, of all the water found on the planet, only 3% is freshwater—one-third of which is accessible to the plants, animals and humans that need it. As the population continues to grow, our supply of freshwater is being depleted. The good news is, you can do something about it. It’s called water footprinting.
If you’re new to the concept, your water footprint refers to the total volume of freshwater used to run your business—from the production of goods and services to water use in office buildings and everything in between. Many organizations today are embracing the practice, with an increasing awareness of their operations’ impact on our supply of freshwater. With UEG, you can do the same.
As your water sustainability partner, UEG will:
- Evaluate your water footprint—either by facility or across multiple facilities throughout your entire organization
- Perform a water vulnerability analysis to examine risks of the water sources being used, who’s using that source, the type of water being used (e.g. groundwater), and the availability and feasibility of additional sources.
- Explain what it means and why it matters
- Offer guidance on how to optimize the water your business is taking in
You can rest assured we have you covered.
