Water footprint assessment provides detailed information on water consumption and potential environmental effects caused by manufacturing or operations.
The results help to discover those stages of the process where it is possible to decrease the water consumption and to save water from the environmental point of view.
Economical effects are calculated if the life cycle cost analysis is made at the same time. Water footprint calculation is performed applying the international standard ISO/TS 14046.
Communication about water footprint can improve the images of both the company and the product or service in question.
Besides external communication, the results of water footprint calculation can be used in optimizing the customer’s own actions or manufacturing.
Calculation of water footprint offers a possibility to more sustainable water use and reuse in the production.
