Be Waterwise – Business

Encourage your team to Be Waterwise

Lead by example:

  • Make water usage updates a standing agenda item in meetings– show trends in use; noting areas of high use and opportunities where water savings can be made

  • Establish a baseline for water use and a target to achieve within business applicable timeframes

  • Implement a Be Waterwise business program and recognise staff who are careful water users and/or initiate water efficiency practices
  • Identify staff to be 'water champions'. Water Champions can help with the promotion of water saving ideas, monitor water use and ensure water leaks are found and fixed quickly

Highlight water saving opportunities:

  • Display water efficiency posters in the staff room or kitchen
  • Share water saving ideas and progress reports to staff in newsletters, emails and bulletins

Take Action:

Build a water saving culture for your business:

  • Include water efficiency policies and procedures in staff induction and training programs
  • Establish an ideas box to encourage staff to suggest workplace water saving opportunities
  • Promote water saving programs and smart water use to demonstrate your business is a sustainable workplace
