Register now for our joint webinars on December 3 and 10!
To increase companies’ awareness of their direct and indirect water consumption and associated impacts along the supply chain, the Chair of Sustainable Engineering at TU Berlin initiated the research project WELLE, together with Deutsches Kupferinstitut e.V., Evonik AG, Neoperl GmbH, thinkstep AG and Volkswagen AG.
The WELLE project develops methodical and practical solutions to help companies determine their water footprints. Among these solutions is the recently developed web-based tool for calculating a company’s water footprint—the Organizational Water Footprint tool (OWF).
The free OWF Tool, available online, disseminates and facilitates the application of the Organizational Water Footprint method. It allows companies to determine their water footprints by entering the direct water usage at production sites, the purchase of energy and materials and supporting activities (business travel, workplace cafeteria, etc.). By linking these indirect activities with a water database, the tool determines the water consumption along the value chain and estimates the resulting local consequences. In this way, you can determine your company’s total water footprint, including an analysis of local hotspots in global supply chains.
The OWF Tool is based on data from thinkstep’s GaBi database. thinkstep revisited water data in GaBi to improve regional representativeness. GaBi Envision, together with an interface, is used to make this data available online.

WELLE is hosting a webinar to introduce its OWF methodology, its online tool and the underlying database.
