While energy costs typically outpace water costs, analysts predict significant water cost increases in coming years due to growing water shortages and continued infrastructure investments needed to maintain water and wastewater treatment facilities.
In addition, water footprinting—a more advanced, spatiotemporal accounting of water withdrawals and qualitative assessment of wastewater discharge impacts—is beginning to gain traction. Effective water management solutions and strategies are needed to help businesses combat these rising water costs and manage water more sustainably.
ENGIE Impact’s Water Management services assists organizations in managing water and wastewater bills, a foundational activity that helps accurately report on withdrawals and wastewater discharges. Building on this core of analytical data, ENGIE Impact’s facility auditors identify sites with abnormally high water usage and conduct water efficiency studies to determine capital investment and behavioral change opportunities for reducing water consumption.
Leveraging ENGIE Impact's holistic approach to assessing our product’s environmental impact positions Burgerville well to continue to be a sustainability leader in the quick-service restaurant industry.
