This year’s World FM Day has the theme of leading the sustainable future. Now more than ever facilities managers are expected to be leading the conversation about the environmental impact of the buildings that they manage, and organisations need to be able to demonstrate that they take that environmental impact seriously.
Facilities managers need to be able to advise on how facilities can be managed in a more sustainable way and to make that case internally at board level. This means a deep understanding of the impact of different aspects of their facilities combined with knowledge of the sustainable options that are available.
At Ecoprod we specialise in helping organisations to use less water. Our core focus traditionally has been on washrooms – generally one of the most water-intensive areas of a building – but increasingly we are working on projects that take a holistic approach to water management across a whole building looking at every option from rainwater harvesting to smart leak detection, from water saving technology to behaviour change.
Here are a few of the resources we have available that may be useful if you’re a facilities manager who wants to learn more about water saving options for your organisation.
The Ecoprod Guide to Saving Water in your Business
Water-saving initiatives can help organisations to demonstrate sustainability, reduce their carbon footprint as well as helping achieve green certification and showing leadership in environmental management. So how can you start to deliver responsible water management, and consequential cost savings for your organisation?
Our Guide to Saving Water in your Business is a comprehensive overview of what can be done to reduce water use across your organisation, whether you’re planning a complete washroom or kitchen refit or are looking for quick wins that can be implemented within your current set up.
On demand webinar library
We run a whole series of webinars looking at every aspect of water saving in organisations. Some are deep dives into a particular technology such as waterless urinals, low flow showers or sensor taps, whilst others take a more holistic approach and look at how to build a water saving strategy for your organisation, the importance of effective washroom design for water saving and other similar topics.
The Green Washroom Guide
This ebook is a comprehensive guide to making all aspects of your washrooms as sustainable as possible by:
- Saving water
- Cutting energy use
- Reducing your carbon footprint
At Ecoprod the entire focus of our business is on helping organisations to make their washrooms as sustainable as possible. All the products we offer, from the waterless urinals and sensor taps through to the hand dryers and cleaning equipment, have been carefully selected because of their environmental credentials. This book is based on our decades of experience in helping organisations make their washrooms greener and discusses the environmental impact of all aspects of washroom design.
Waterless urinal resources
If you’re looking to save water in your washrooms then waterless urinals are a must. Each urinal saves at least 100,000 litres of water per year. If you’re new to waterless urinals then we have a series of articles addressing the questions that we’re most commonly asked.
- How do waterless urinals work?
- What are the benefits of waterless urinals?
- How can you ensure your waterless urinals don’t smell?
- What’s the best way to clean your waterless urinals?
A holistic view of water management in your organisation
In addition to washroom technology we can also help you take a more holistic view of your organisation’s facilities with some other water saving options.
- Rainwater harvesting and greywater management
- Smart leak detection systems
- Smart water management systems
