Waterblade joins online innovation portal to boost transition to net zero

Waterblade water saving mod for washroom taps has been chosen as an innovation partner for a new self-service, interactive and intelligent marketplace for sustainable technologies.

The Wates Innovation Network (WIN) portal is the first initiative of its kind and has been created by the Wates Group, one of the UK’s leading family-owned construction, development and property services companies, to help businesses ‘build back better’.

The portal will connect companies directly, and free of charge, with partners that can offer solutions to help meet sustainability targets. It aims to create an industry leading network that will accelerate the transition to net zero by showcasing smarter solutions to design, construct and maintain buildings.

Waterblade has been providing its products since 2015. As an innovation partner Waterblade will feature on the WIN portal alongside 41 other suppliers approved by a screening panel including 40 environmental experts. Users can filter sustainable innovations based on their requirements to find the product and supplier most suitable for them.

The new online portal will enable businesses seeking water and energy usage reductions to connect with businesses directly and better support them in providing tangible environmental and operational savings. Waterblade has been proven to half Water and energy consumptions without compromising on performance.

JP Morgan said: “Can you send me a quote for an addition 100 water blade units please and separate quote for an additional 200 units, as staff have been asking if they can buy them from us.”

John Dunne, Group Health, Safety, Environment and Quality Director at Wates, commented: “The market for sustainable solutions is expanding fast and companies who are not investing in innovations will soon be unable to compete. The issue is 95% of market ready sustainable technologies never get considered because key decision makers do not know they exist, or suppliers don’t have access to the key corporate decision makers. The WIN portal is bridging that gap, showcasing innovation and helping businesses to meet bold environmental targets.”
