As part of the ‘Rippleffect’ initiative, small and medium sized businesses are offered access to online training modules, telephone support, web conferences and webcasts, as well as free water-saving devices.

WRAP head of business and markets Carl Nichols, said that “businesses taking action on water efficiency can save around 30% on their water bills and help maintain security of supply”.

He added that offices can “profit significantly” from simple water reduction steps in facilities such as kitchens and bathrooms.

He added that reducing water consumption also helps to reduce carbon emissions, saying “for every cubic metre of water saved, companies can reduce their carbon footprint by around one kilogram.”
