What is the Water Footprint?
An Water Footprint is an indicator which allows knowing the impacts that an activity, product or business has on water resources.
Some benefits of measuring the water footprint are:
- Bolster water management: allows identifying the processes that waste water.
- Save costs: by knowing which processes waste water, you can apply water efficiency measures.
- Moderate water emissions: be able to determine actions that can decrease impacts, which will help you avoid fines for breaching water quality standards.
Types of Water Footprints
Blue Water Footprint
To measure the blue water footprint, the water consumption from surface, such as lakes and rivers, or underwater sources used for a product or service is calculated. For this footprint, the water taken from a source and returned to it or to another source should be considered.
Green Water Footprint
To calculate this water footprint, the quantity of water from precipitations that is used in the manufacturing process is estimated.
Grey Water Footprint
To calculate the grey water footprint, the amount of freshwater needed to assimilate pollutants emitted by your company is measured. This footprint considers point-source pollution that is discharged directly through a pipe or indirectly through run-off.
