Britain Leads Global Water Initiative

AquaMark Launches at Pinewood Studios

Global organisations back the launch of Britain’s first National water benchmarking scheme at world-renowned Pinewood Studios, giving it “00” status!

AquaMark is a multi-million pound grant scheme managed by consultants ADSM and is free to join for all UK participating organisations. The National project will fund a range of services so that sophisticated benchmarks can be derived for over 500 different building classifications, allowing commercial users to reduce water usage by an average of 30%. The project is the first of its kind and is set to put Britain at the forefront of global water benchmarking.

Patrick McCart, ADSM Founder and Director, commented: “Right now there exists a real opportunity for UK organisations, both large and small, to participate in this ground-breaking research project. Britain is set to become the global advisor on sustainable water supplies for commercial users. The recent events experienced in California and São Paulo, have highlighted how essential it is that businesses and organisations are supported with all the necessary tools to combat water scarcity.”

The successful launch took place at ADSM’s Media offices in Pinewood studios and was supported by over 100 blue chip and public sector organisations.

The project has received strong backing from the water industry, regulators OFWAT, The Environment Agency, and leading research experts BRE, BSRIA and the University of Oxford.
