The UK Water Efficiency Awards are now open for entry until June 30! Click here for more details
Public, private and third sector organisations from all over the UK are welcome to apply. Entry is easy and free.
The Environment Agency and Waterwise biannual UK Water Efficiency Awards 2012, this year supported by Bosch and Methven, is a celebration of the achievements of public, private and third sector organisations that "Shout" about water efficiency, "Solve" water demand management challenges and simply "Save" water.
The UK-wide search is on to publicly recognise organisations that are taking responsibility to use water wisely to benefit society and economy, and protect our natural environment. Winners and runners-up will receive many benefits from the awards, not least that they will be used as good practice case studies for dissemination by the Environment Agency, Waterwise and others.
