Barry McGovaney, Innovation and Technology Manager at Water Plus, the largest water retailer in the UK, explains where the carbon emissions are in water at sites.

Barry takes us through examples of what organisations can consider – and what they need to be aware of with their water- in this podcast.

He said: “It’s important to know what water you’re using where at your site. It can help to spot leaks and water waste – and identify opportunities to help reduce running costs for businesses.

“By looking at water and water efficiency it can also lower energy use.”
