Water Efficiency Management Systems
Water scarcity is one of the largest global risk and set to increase further over the next decade. The pressures on organisations to implement a sustainable water management plan is paramount to reduce water demand from non-domestic sector and encourage water conservation.
ISO 46001 specifies requirements and contains guidance for its use regarding organisational water use. It includes monitoring, measurement, documentation, reporting, design and procurement practices for equipment, systems, processes and personnel training that contribute to water efficiency management. It is applicable to organisations of all types and sizes that use water and is focused on end-use consumers.
Effective implementation of a water efficiency management plan not only result in substantial savings in water, as well as energy, therefore reducing the environmental impact of both water discharge and the need to pump water over long distances.
The adoption and proper implementation of a water efficiency management system is intended to result in improved water efficiency and can help to achieve the following outcomes:
