Businesses with water saving ideas to benefit from new £150,000 funding pot

Businesses from across the south can get access to thousands of pounds that can help them unlock innovative ways to save water.

Southern Water is teaming up with businesses of all sizes across its region to encourage them to save water.

The Business Partnership Fund works like a grant scheme, if any businesses have a water-saving project that can benefit their business, they can call on Southern Water for help to help them achieve it.

Southern Water’s Director of Water, Tim McMahon, said:

“Water is a precious resource and we must all play our part in looking after it. We know many businesses have some brilliant ideas to save water.

“We’re here to provide that extra bit of funding that can make those ideas a reality and that in turn will provide a much wider benefit to all our customers and businesses as water saving really does make a huge difference.”

“There are many ways businesses can save water whether it’s harvesting rain or shower water, fitting flow restrictors on taps or maybe you want to try harnessing new technology to save water – we are here to help.”

A total of £150,000 will be available to kick-start the fund. Applications are now open until 31 December this year. Water retailers supplying businesses are welcome to apply, along with water conservation service providers.

Applicants will find out if their project gets funding in January. To find out more about terms and conditions visit Business Partnership Fund
