A region is referred to as a water-stressed region if the ratio between annual water withdrawal and the total available annual water supply is high (from 40 %) or very high (over 80 %). The higher the percentage, the higher the water withdrawal compared to the water supply per year. The “Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas” of the “World Resources Institute” is used to identify these regions.
The Spanish site of the E.G.O.-Group, E.G.O. Appliance Controls, S.L.U. (EAC), is located in Lliçà de Vall (near Barcelona) in a region severely affected by water scarcity. Employees have therefore been working hard to reduce their water consumption since 2020—with great success.
