World's First ISO/DIS 14046 - Water Footprint Assessment Training Program at Mumbai

03/05/13

ISO/DIS 14046 - "Environment Management - Water Footprint - Principles, Requirements & Guidelines"



Within a month of the publication of this standard by ISO, Bureau Veritas in India, developed and conducted the first technical cum training workshop on 25-27 April 2013 at Mumbai. The response to this program was very positive and encouraging. The program designed and delivered on the "Accelerated Learning Model", where participants are required to work in groups to try and solve given problems. This method of learning was very well received and the participants rated the training received as excellent.

This workshop cum training assumes relevance in the current scenario of water insecurity in India. The government has estimated that per capita water availability has dropped as much as 74% over the last 60 years. Therefore, unless organisations take steps to manage their water usage, this availability of water is likely to get worse. Furthermore, decreased availability of water can lead to many undesirable consequences, such as disruption in production, leading to plants shutting down, etc. In addition, water crisis can damage an organisation's reputation with local communities and stakeholders.

Besides covering the requirements of the ISO/DIS 14046:- "Environment Management - Water Footprint - Principles, Requirements & Guidelines", the program also covered the Best Practices and Principles from ISO 14001 EMS standard, water offsetting, watershed management & storm water management coupled with hands-on experience sharing from the vast experience of Bureau Veritas.
