HydroPoint Data Systems Inc., provider of the WeatherTRAK® Smart Water Management solution, today announced the next webcast in its 360° Educational Series. The webcast will examine Jack in the Box’s implementation of best practices and proven technologies to reduce corporate water demand along with operating costs.
HydroPoint will co-present the webcast with Jack in the Box and The Coca-Cola Company on Thursday, November 12, 2009 at 2 pm ET/11 am PT.
Jack in the Box, The Coca Cola Company and other leading organizations have identified Smart Water Management as critical to their corporate social responsibility strategies. Smart Water Management solutions eliminate water waste by enabling companies to measure, monitor, manage and report water use both indoors and outdoors.
The first step of a Smart Water Management deployment involves analysis of company-wide water use to identify areas with the greatest potential for conservation through process or infrastructure improvement. By addressing these areas first, companies fund future water efficiency measures while they remain cash-flow positive. For example, a company may apply cost savings achieved through landscape irrigation system upgrades to cover the expense of installing waterless urinals, which typically have a more protracted payback period.
In this 30-minute webcast, attendees will learn how Jack in the Box’s Smart Water Management strategy reduced the company’s water use by 47 percent in just four months at its corporate campus in San Diego, CA. Since adopting water-efficient measures that also reduce water-related energy demand, Jack in the Box saves over one million gallons of water and prevents the emission of 5,360 pounds of greenhouse gases annually.
“A business-conscious, 360-degree focus on reducing water footprint delivers the fastest environmental and financial returns,” said Sharon Thompson, vice president of marketing for HydroPoint. Ms. Thompson added, “That’s precisely why leading corporate citizens representing a broad swath of industries are taking a closer look at their management of one of our most precious natural resources.”
