Water footprint in the steel industry
- Siderex (The Spanish Association of Steelworks Exporters)
- 2015 -
Using international standards, we are working on the water footprint for the steel sector in the Basque Country, Spain. Starting from an initial analysis, and adapting the international methodologies (mainly ISO 14046 and The Water Footprint Assessment Manual) to the reality of the sector at a regional level, this is applied to all of the companies from the sector in the area of study.
For this, we provide support in determining the scope of the data gathering through forms drawn up ad hoc.
Throughout the whole process, technical assistance is provided to the representatives of each organisation to help them understand the whole process. Alongside this, workshops are held for training and to cross-check results.
