5.1 THE ENVIRONMENT
Like-for-Like Water Consumption
2016 vs 2017
Note: Total water consumption includes
rainwater collected and stored by Westeld,
and municipal water or other water utilities.
The percentage change on a Like-for-Like basis
remained constant: 39% increase in US water
consumption and 8% decrease in UK water
Water consumption reduction continued to be an area of focus
for Westfield Corporation in 2017. Our Total Water Consumption
decreased by 41% between 2016 and 2017.
The large decrease in water consumption in 2017 is a result of
increased water management through fixing water leaks occuring
in 2016 and systems such as the Hydropoint Watercompass™
Across our US portfolio, 2017 Total Water Consumption decreased
by 66% due to the identification and maintenance of water leaks.
