The Water Impact Index provides a comprehensive assessment of the impact of human activity on water resources.
Developed by Veolia Water Technologies and Veolia's R&D group, the Water Impact Index is a tool that can help plan long-term projects and better understand sustainable approaches to ensure lasting water supplies and healthy water ecosystems.
Water footprint: not only a matter of volume
The Water Impact Index expands on existing volume-based water measurement tools by factoring in three essential elements: quantity of water used, level of stress upon water resources and overall water quality.
The Water Impact Index examines the effect of human activity on water resources and provides a methodology for establishing positive and negative implications of how water resources are managed. It provides additional parameters needed to make informed choices about effective water management.
