Biochemica Carbon Trust Water Standard Support Service

Water management specialist Biochemica UK Ltd is delighted to announce the launch of its Biochemica Carbon Trust Water Standard Support Service which assists organisations in achieving the new globally recognised certification.

What is The Carbon Trust Water Standard (CTWS)?

The CTWS is an organisation-level water assessment and reduction programme developed to encourage and recognise good practice in water use assessment, management and reduction by businesses and public sector organisations.

Why is it important?

It is predicted that by 2030 global water demand will increase to a level 40% above current supply, while the world population is estimated to grow from 7 billion to 9.1 billion by 2050, inflicting a greater strain on water resources to meet increased food, energy and industrial demands. By addressing these issues now and working to achieve the new standard, organisations will demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and in turn improve their reputation. There are also opportunities for cost reductions that can be made in the short and long term.

Who is it aimed at?

Amongst the first to pilot the scheme were household names Coca-Cola Enterprises, Sunlight PLC, Branston, Glanbia and Sainsbury’s, but the CTWS can be achieved by organisations of any size, sector and industry looking to become more water efficient and make a difference to their bottom line.

What is involved?

To achieve the CTWS, organisations are required to implement the Corporate Water Use Assessment (CWUA) Protocol, which has been adopted as the basis of water measurement and performance assessment.

Consisting of two parts, the CWUA Protocol is made up of assisting organisations in measuring their water use (Part 1: Requirements) and establishing a benchmark for organisations seeking to demonstrate and report on water management, and change in use over time (Part 2: Criteria).
