Free Web-based Tool for Companies to Measure Water Use


This is really neat, and it was just unveiled at World Water Week in Stockholm in August 2007. It is the Global Water Tool, a free tool available for companies, organizations, or governmental agencies to measure water-use both at the place of business and through the supply chain. The tool is intended primarily for businesses with international reach, but would also be applicable for a smaller entities wishing to evaluate water consumption. The first step of conservation is having an accurate view of actual use. The tool includes a download portion using Excel and on-line mapping portion.
