Office buildings, schools, hotels, hospitals, restaurants, and other commercial and institutional facilities use a significant amount of water and energy in their daily operations. Owners and managers of these types of facilities are increasingly aware of the need to use water more efficiently to reduce their risk to water shortages and increasing costs. There is a strong business case to be made for water efficiency.
WaterSense provides facility managers, building owners, and other stakeholders with a variety of resources and initiatives to help them save water, energy, and operating costs.
Your facility can start saving today by taking action:
Learn how different types of facilities use water and which WaterSense tools can help your facility save the most.
Read the WaterSense at Work best management practices that can help reduce your facility's overall water use. Implementing water efficiency at work starts with understanding a facility’s water-using processes.
Assess your facility's water use with our free tools, view webinars, read case studies, and more. If you manage a CI facility and need help reducing facility water use, take advantage of the free resources.
Multifamily buildings can use the EPA Water Score to measure and track building water use as a way to reduce operating costs and appeal to green-minded tenants.
Hotels can sign up for WaterSense's H2Otel Challenge, which helps hotel managers get free recognition, outreach, and technical tools to save water, energy, and money.
