Ecolab Launches Water Conservation Tool

Company News, Facilities Management, Americas, Service Provider News

Ecolab has launched Smart Water Navigator, a free online tool that helps companies establish realistic targets for reducing water consumption.





Based on a thirteen-question assessment compiled by the company in partnership with Trucost, part of S&P Global, and an advisory panel of major private sector companies, the tool allows companies to benchmark water consumption at individual facilities against results reported by their industry peers, and displays results graphically in a corporate dashboard.


Companies accessing the dashboard can sort facilities by geography, water-stress level and water management performance, and identify particular sites which will benefit from investment in water-saving solutions.


Smart Water Navigator will be of particular interest to operators of industrial facilities following United Nations estimates that industry accounts for 20 per cent of freshwater consumption in more than 40 per cent of developed countries and a growing number of developing countries.


Introducing the tool, Ecolab Chairman and CEO, Douglas M. Baker, Jr., said:

"Every business and every community needs water and there's so much companies can do right now with available technology to help ensure that everyone will have the water they need in the future.


"That’s why we developed this tool."
