Footprint management is your goal. How to achieve it?
This is where we come in.
The need to measure, act & communicate on the impact and improvements in water footprint is increasing.
Good quality freshwater is a scarce resource, one that is becoming increasingly rare in some parts of the world due to increased demand and pollution. The scarcity of freshwater generates significant problems for human health, social/political stability and ecosystems as well as being a source of risk for companies (Ceres, CEO Water Mandate).
Corporate involvement is a fundamental solution to this issue, but methods to identify effective actions are severely lacking (UNEP-SETAC). The need to measure, act and communicate on the impact, manage related risk and improve corporates' water footprint is increasing.
Quantis approach to water issues allows you to acquire precise knowledge of your supply chain and your products life cycle, beyond your own activity.
Quantis helps you to fulfil these needs by mastering existing methods & standards for water footprint, as:
Applications for such a simplified assessment include risk assessment, benchmarking, and labeling of high number of products.
Working in collaboration with some of the world’s leading engineering universities, Quantis identifies, develops and applies the state-of-the-science methods to address the major issues in water use, to evaluate environmental impacts to manage related risks.
|The model to evaluate|
The model to evaluate the impacts of water allows both single score reporting and a deep understandings.
A water scarcity assessment has been developed using internationally recognized water stress index (WSI) to provide companies the ability to assess the potential environment impact of water use quickly, easily and consistently, based on the principles of the life cycle assessment defined by the ISO standards 14'040-44.
Is water footprinting going to influence your business and when? Quantis evaluates your needs and advises you on what to measure, how, when and for which purposes.
