We recognise that water is a precious natural resource and we are looking to further develop our approach to water management.
To help us better understand how water is used in a typical store we have installed water sub meters and data loggers in some of our stores in Scotland. Analysis of these data will help us to identify areas of highest water use and target these with programmes to reduce consumption. With the water market in England opening up to competition we have tendered for a single supply contract for our sites in England. Whilst this is a fairly new market we expect this to drive further water saving activity over coming years.
