Client: Alliance for Water Stewardship

Objective of the assignment:

To Create the capacity and supporting the implementation of the AWS Standard in Europe.

How we did it:

We operate as an integral part of the AWS secretariat in Edinburgh and are in charge of increasing the capacity on water stewardship and implementation of the water stewardship standard in Europe. Using the standard training materials of AWS, we organise workshops and trainings for interested companies, producers and consultants to increase their capacity on the standard. In specific cases, we provide technical support to companies that want to implement the AWS Standard and help them in the journey towards certification. This was the case with Iberesparragal, Spanish citrus farm that obtained AWS gold certification in 2018. Find out more: AWS implementation case study in Spain.
