Belgium and its Water Footprint
The new report published by WWF Belgium calculates that every Belgian consumes 7400 lt (about 90 bathtubs) of water every day. By means of this report WWF wishes to draw attention to this resource which is so often taken for granted. Water is a precious natural resource that is used on a massive scale in agriculture, and in the production of our food, of animal feed and of textile fibres, not to mention biofuel.
WWF-Belgium encourages public actors and businesses to take account of water footprints and the sustainable management of water in their management practices and their policies. The concrete examples that we give here may serve as sources of inspiration for action.
