London Heathrow has partnered with dedicated water retailer Affinity for Business for the supply of its clean and waste water services.
The alliance will focus on a long-term, shared commitment towards more sustainable water usage across the whole of the Heathrow estate over an initial five-year contract.
Home to more than 400 separate businesses and employing around 76,000 workers, Heathrow Airport is one of the largest private water networks in Europe and operates within a highly populated and water-stressed area.
The new partnership aims to find innovative ways to reduce overall water usage through measures such as the reduction of potable water waste and the introduction of non-treated water recycling schemes.
Keith Lockhart, Categories Manager at Heathrow Airport, said: “As a busy airport, Heathrow is one of the biggest consumers of water in the local area and we have a duty to act responsibly and sustainably when it comes to its use.
“Affinity for Business are not only a reliable partner that get the basics right, they also share our values and goals when it comes to great service and a sustainable future.”
