Bosch and Methven back water efficiency

Domestic appliance manufacturer Bosch has joined forces with shower and tap manufacturer Methven UK to back the UK Water Efficiency Awards 2012.

A biannual competition, run by Waterwise and the Environment Agency, the awards celebrate the achievements of public, private and third sector organisations in making the UK more water efficient.

Businesses in the UK currently use about 9.8 billion cubic litres of water a day – but could be using up to a third less – saving around £10million every day.

Entries for the awards are open now until the end of June 2012, to any business or organisation that has taken steps to improve their own water efficiency, or has helped others to reduce their water use. Categories include Innovation, Landscape and Gardening, Community-led Initiative and Business and Industry.

Steve Lee, CEO of joint sponsors Methven UK, said: “The bathroom is one of the biggest water wastage areas in the home and we recognise the importance of our industry and others, working to educate consumers about the water saving measures they can take.”

Simon Jones, sales director of Bosch Home Appliances said: “Bosch is proud to sponsor of this years UK Water Efficiency Awards and hope to contribute to the efforts of Waterwise, The Environment Agency and Methven in conserving the UK’s water usage.”

The awards ceremony will be held on Monday, 17 September 2012 in The Cholmondeley Room at the House of Lords. Entry is easy and free but closes on 30 June, so get started!
