route zero

Understanding how to use water sustainably can be confusing and stressful. But with simple, stress-free solutions, your business can harness the power of water management and reduce its carbon footprint.

As we approach net zero targets, efficiency within UK businesses has become essential. In the midst of COP26, the nation has been warned to prepare for further floods, rising sea levels and pressure on water supplies. The race to implement sustainable practices is on, and it is up to businesses to understand their unique water footprint.

At EIC, we provide the tools to visualise and gain insight into your water consumption – and helping you with the ongoing management of your water use.

Four steps to get your water savings flowing:

 Review
 We’ll investigate your current charges and highlight opportunities to
reduce wastage and costs.

  Audit  
We take a detailed look at your water usage
to realise future savings, minimise waste and improve efficiency

 Procure
 We help to lower your bills and improve your
service via a competitive tender, to secure a contract that suits your needs

 Manage
 We’ll keep checking your bills, manage supplier
queries and identify opportunities to improve

Water audits

The key to water efficiency is to reduce water waste, not restrict use. To become more efficient with your water usage, you first need to understand exactly what your consumption consists of. Through our Water Desktop Analysis, we can identify water savings through a comprehensive analysis of your water supply, use and disposal.

Our Water Desktop Analysis will provide you with:

From this analysis, we can establish if there is more to investigate. We can visit your site to conduct a full water audit, including site meters, water fittings and site drainage. You will then be able to decide on the most effective water procurement for your business.

Procurement

For the largest consumers, a self-supply licence allows you to ‘cut out the middle man’. This means that you can quickly and easily minimise your water bills whilst maximising your ability to manage your water assets. Self-supply enables businesses to bypass water retailers, as you effectively become your own water supplier. This means you’ll pay the wholesale price directly to the company that provides water to you.
