Utilitywise triumphs at the Green Apple Environment Awards

Posted: Tuesday 15th December 2015

Utilitywise has been awarded with a Green Apple Environment Award held at the House of Commons. Beating off 500 other nominations on the night, Utilitywise secured a ‘Silver’ award at the prestigious ceremony.

The recognition followed a successful project managed by the Utilitywise Water team, working closely with a leading supermarket chain to reduce water usage and wastage.

The first phase of the project trialled the use of Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) technology to monitor, analyse and compare water usage across the supermarkets estate. This provided the data required to perform on-site consumption reducing water audits targeting stores with concerning and unidentified rises in water usage.

From this representative sample, the Utilitywise team worked in partnership with the retailer to reduce consumption by a proven 50,000m3 a year. That’s enough water to supply over 300 households for a year.

The award marks a significant achievement for the highly experienced and expert Water team at Utilitywise. Whilst the majority of commercial users cannot switch water supplier, we have proved that significant savings are achievable. It’s all about focusing on water efficiency and reducing wastage. The benefits are crystal clear – lower water bills and enhance sustainability credentials.

The Green Apple Environment Awards were launched in 1994 by The Green Organisation and have become well established as one of the most popular environmental campaigns in the world. The awards are an annual international campaign to recognise, reward and promote environmental best practice around the world.

The Green Apple Awards are supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and a host of other leading independent bodies.
