ADSM and Bart’s Health NHS Trust achieved a landslide victory in the water management category at the 2Degrees Champion Awards 2014, beating stiff competition from rivals Coca Cola, Pepsi, Sainsbury’s, H&M and the European Water Partnership.

ADSM and the AquaFund Grant have worked together with the Trust for 4 years to create a partnership which delivers measurable and transparent water efficiencies that are replicable across both the NHS and the rest of the public and private sectors.

Our winning project has delivered:

  • Savings of over 480 million litres of water
  • Cut costs by £960,000
  • Saved 391 tonnes CO2e
  • Improved the visibility of the Trusts usage
  • Improved skills to the Trusts workforce
  • Demonstrated the benefits of addressing water consumption
  • Helped assist over 472,000 people out of water poverty

AquaFund provided the Trust with all the finance and resources necessary in order to reduce its water consumption and achieve financial savings; including the full grant, consultancy services, site audits and state-of-the-art water saving technologies, together with water data and tariff analysis, bill validation, services and on-going monitoring.

The project continues to deliver positive changes, reducing the Trust’s impact on the environment and conserving a scarce resource for the future.
