According to Energy Live Times some of the biggest brands are helping to tackle water and energy use together in the UK. Nokia, Nestle, Boots, Baxter Healthcare, Tata, Crown Paints and Sainsbury’s are amongst other major companies to have signed up to a framework to manage water and energy use simultaneously.
Research released by the Water Footprint Network and sustainability specialists, Anthesis, suggests that there is a danger of seeing water and carbon footprints separately, as increasing demand for water places pressure on energy usage.
The framework puts forward some examples where the two combine, such as refrigeration and air con systems, which use rainwater harvesting, or establishing an energy team to analyse and identify water and energy savings at the same time.
