water restoration certificates®

balance your business’ water footprint and leave a lasting legacy

 

So much water is withdrawn from rivers and streams to service individuals, agriculture, industry and businesses, that across North America tens of thousands of miles of dry or critically dewatered river systems now exist. In many places, water withdrawals completely dry up streams and significantly impact water quality, native fish and wildlife, aesthetics and recreational opportunities.

In response to the rise of global water scarcity, more and more businesses are seeking innovative ways to minimize their organization’s water footprint through a wide range of conservation methods. BEF’s Water Restoration Certificates® (WRCs) offer the first-of-its-kind tool to go a step further—to actually restore the water footprint you can’t avoid, gallon-for-gallon, to critically dewatered rivers and streams.

Each WRC represents 1,000 gallons of water restored in stream on your behalf and directly contributes to restoring the economic, recreational and ecological vitality of critical freshwater ecosystems. All WRC projects are certified by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s strict set of criteria to ensure flow is restored to the environment in locations and at a time that will have optimum environmental benefit.
