Sustainable Water Management - Managing a Limited Resource

Where, when and how much? 

Calculating your water footprint with First Climate

Developing a sustainable water management strategy within a company requires you to know the details of your water consumption and wastewater output as well as the local context within which you operate or source raw materials. The calculation and mapping of direct and indirect corporate  water footprints makes it possible to uncover inefficiencies in water use and catchment level risks. It therefore forms the basis of a corporate sustainable water management strategy.

Calculating your water footprint

We can assist you in calculating your company-specific water use, whether it is based on a single site, product line or covers your global production network. To ensure that no significant component of your water management system is overlooked, our calculations include an examination of each product location and may also include the entire supply chain where relevant.

Starting with a general kick-off meeting in which we determine together the system boundaries for the planned analysis, we then identify which data we require for the calculation of your direct and indirect water footprint.
