Water in the Workplace

Session Description:

Whatever the industry and wherever the workplace, a readily available, clean and healthy water source is needed for drinking. In the past, this need was fulfilled through bottled water. More recently, companies have moved to filtered tap water.
This move has been catalyzed by a number of factors including a need to save cost, space, administration output and to increase convenience. However, it is increasingly catalyzed by the desire and need to be more sustainable and reduce carbon footprints.
Companies and organisations globally are increasingly looking to maximize their sustainability credentials through a host of objectives, whilst trying to achieve recognized rating certification such as LEED and BEAM.
This speaker will review ‘Water in the Workplace’ by exploring the different ways of delivering water to the people and which ways offer the most ‘green’ solutions.
