Did you know that 70% of the water the UK uses is actually consumed overseas, and ’embodied’ into products that are then imported into the country? This webinar will give you an overview of the practice of water footprinting, which helps organisations understand their water usage in internal operations and supply chains, and assess their impact and water risks around the world.

Please join us on the 5th March 2021 11.30am – 12.30 UTC for a webinar on this important topic. To register you attendance, please click here.
