• Water Water Neutral

What is Net Zero Water?

Net Zero Water (NZW) is a concept that aims to change the way water resources are managed; it focuses on making water resource planning decisions based on local conditions rather than demand. The NZW concept helps individuals and organizations become water neutral.

NZW focuses on understanding your water footprint and taking action to reduce consumption and improve water quality whether you are a building owner, company, school campus, or community. Objectives of the NZW initiative include the following:

  • Recognizing financial and environmental benefits from reducing water use and quality impacts.
  • Promoting water stewardship and recognizing water as a precious resource essential to protecting our economy, security, lifestyles, and values.
  • Providing technical guidance and assistance to enhance the utilization and protection of water resources from the building scale to an entire watershed.

We've launched the Net Zero Water Building Scale Toolkit!

The building scale toolkit is currently available for free download. Visit the Building Toolkit page for more information and to download a copy.
