Managing Waste Water - Tip 1

June 2, 2020

How much water does your company use and what does it cost? Use the calculation below to find out.

Your water bill tells you the amount of water that you use and your annual spend. Use the calculations below to find out your baseline for water used per member of your business.

  • Annual water use (m3) divided by Number of People in your business = water use per person per year.

  • Annual cost of water (£’s) divided by Number of People in your business = cost of water per person per year.

ISO14001:2015 Clause 9.1 requires a company to monitor, measure, analyse and evaluate its environmental performance and to continually improve - Clause 10.3.


To demonstrate this and comply with the standard, why not have an objective to reduce the amount of water used and save money at the same time?

  1. Establish what your base-line level of water used is: m3/person/year

  2. How much do you currently spend on water: £/person/year

Objective: Reduce water use to: m3/person/year by dd/mm/yyyy

Objective: Reduce costs of water to: £/person/year by dd/mm/yyyy


Remember to document and assign these objectives to the most appropriate person. Look out for Tip 2 for handy hints on how to reduce water usage.
