South West Waterwww.southwestwater.co.uk
South West Water is proud to sponsor this year’s South West Tourism Excellence Awards.
In our beautiful region we want to lead the way to a sustainable water future for us all and to ensure that we can keep our rivers and streams flowing and nature thriving in our precious environment. With population growth and climate change there’s less water to go around. We’re doing everything we can to make sure there’s enough water for everyone, and we are pleased to collaborate with Tourism businesses within the South West to promote water efficiency initiatives to reduce water consumption within the tourism sector.
We would welcome any bids for funding to deliver water efficiency within the Non-Household (NHH) sector – specifically Tourism, within our region. southwestwater.co.uk/commercial-services/bioresources/water-resources-market-opportunities/
