Waterwise Business Recognition scheme

Be recognised for your outstanding water saving efforts as part of the Waterwise Business Program Recognition Scheme.

Waterwise Businesses awarded as part of the recognition scheme were acknowledged at the 2017 Waterwise Business Recognition event, co-hosted by Water Corporation and the Department of Water on 9 May 2017.

Read Water Minister's statement recognising Waterwise Businesses

The scheme provides 5 levels of recognition:

Champion achieved Gold Recognition or better for 2 consecutive years
Platinum more than 50% improvement in water efficiency
Gold 35% to 50% improvement in water efficiency
Silver 25% to 35% improvement in water efficiency
Bronze 10% to 25% improvement in water efficiency

 

  • Each year, we calculate the saving in both actual water use and benchmark* as a percentage of your improvement in water efficiency. These figures are used to calculate the savings for the program as a whole.
  • Each reading year savings will be calculated against the year you were identified to join the program.
  • We'll contact you in March/April if you've received an award.

* If you feel that your current benchmark indicator does not accurately measure your business activity against site water use or is no longer relevant, you can discuss the possibility of changing the indicator to a more suitable measure with Water Corporation.

Being recognised provides a number of benefits for your business:

  • receive a certificate profiling the category you achieved
  • promotion in publications, social media, forums, our website and other mediums
  • the potential for a case study about your water saving efforts, which will go on our website
  • recognition branding to promote your water saving achievements - these can be used on your website and email signatures
  • opportunity to become a Waterwise Champion with special acknowledgement, reduced reporting requirements and recognition as a leader in water efficiency.

In May 2017, we acknowledged 75 WA businesses for their water efficiency achievements in 2015–16.

We are currently working with 299 customers and since its inception businesses involved in the Waterwise Business program and have collectively saved over 12 billion litres of water in the 2015–16 year.

Waterwise Office Program exception

If you operate an office building and belong to the Waterwise Business program, your recognition is through the Waterwise Office Program which represents industry best practice. Therefore, you'll be recognised through this based on an industry standard, rather than individual improvement in water use performance.
