Programme Description:

A global water crisis is looming; water consumption in the UAE far outstrips other countries in gallons used per individual, which is why it is imperative that building owners and operators understand their water footprint. There are new and proven water reduction and recycling technologies available for use in office towers, hotels, malls, resorts and other public buildings that will not only reduce consumption, but will also contribute to the owner’s bottom line.

The featured speakers at this month’s Breakfast Briefing will share their knowledge and insight into understanding the importance of conserving water, the challenges we face and ways to overcome them – all whilst delivering value to our building owners and operators.
