The Malta Business Bureau's EU LIFE+ Investing in Water Project aims to help businesses and hotels reduce their water consumption. The project is doing this by providing expert advice to enterprises over the course of 2012 and 2013, on water saving opportunities present in their operations and how best to achieve them.
The project, in early 2012, concluded a set of Water Audits with around. 40 enterprises from various sectors. This set of audits has highlighted water saving opportunities and potential solutions applicable in many scenarios, which should meet the circumstances of local enterprises. They are currently being developed and will be published in a single complete reference document by October 2012. This Water Saving Solutions document will be distributed to businesses and hotels across Malta and Gozo, and made freely available through this website.
The project will also offer enterprises individual consultation on identifying the solutions most relevant to their circumstances and on how to implement them. The project is also organising a national Water Conference on the 22nd of June 2012 – mark that date in your calendars.
By saving water enterprises are reducing their operating costs – important in any commercial enterprise. Enterprises would also be taking concrete action to reduce pressure on a very scarce national resource, benefitting the environment. Commercial interests and environmental protection coming together in such a complimentary manner is true best practice, a win-win situation for all.
