You may have heard of the water footprint. And you probably know what this term refers to. Yes, that’s right – the question, thinking of the big picture, is one of saving the world. In the meantime, however, water consumption has more immediate impacts. The competitiveness and profitability of industry increases through smarter water usage – together with environmental status.
If you want to hear more, welcome to VTT’s webinar Sustainability and Efficiency with Smart Water Usage. In this two-hour webinar we will tell you about the trends and recent developments in water footprint, risk management and water monitoring. You will also hear how to apply and benefit from the findings in water-intensive industries. The opening speech in the webinar will be given by Finland’s Minister of the Environment, Ville Niinistö. The presentations that follow are by VTT specialists and the guest speaker from the industry, Minna Tolonen of UPM. The specialists will be available to answer your questions online after the presentations.
