If you are setting up from scratch then you have the choice of opting for either Universal Analytics or Google Analytics 4. In this webinar we’ll be showing you how to install Universal Analytics. If you’re not sure which version of Google Analytics you’re using or whether the webinar is right for you just drop us a note and we can advise you.

How to cut water use in your business

Wednesday 22nd September 2021

From 10:00, to 11:00

Venue: Online Webinar


Currently the average person uses 140 litres of water per day and this needs to be reduced at least down to 100 litres. This can be achieved not only by helping people to reduce the amount of water that they use when they’re at home but also by organisations working to reduce the amount of water that employees use when they are at work.

We’re past the point where water saving can be considered as an “optional extra” within organisations. Water-saving initiatives can help organisations to demonstrate sustainability, reduce their carbon footprint as well as helping achieve green certification and showing leadership in environmental management. So how can you start to deliver responsible water management, and consequential cost savings for your organisation?
