Business Stream, one of the UK’s largest water retailers, has signed a new water contract with the Scottish Football Association (SFA).

The three-year deal will see the Edinburgh-based water retailer undertake all integrated water management services at Hampden Park. This includes the installation of automatic meter readers (AMRs) to help monitor water use on-site and identify further water efficiencies to help support the organisation’s wider sustainability targets.

Douglas McLaren, Chief Operating Officer at Business Stream, said: “We are delighted to be working with the Scottish Football Association. As a responsible water retailer, we are dedicated to working with our customers to not only generate costs savings but to support our customers’ wider environmental plans too. The SFA has set ambitious sustainability targets and we’re looking forward to working with them to deliver water efficiencies across their national stadium”.

Garry Blackadder, Estate Facilities Manager at the Scottish FA commented: “We are delighted to be working with Business Stream again.  Business Stream are renowned for their efficient monitoring of water supplies. Their prowess in identifying issues early in order to support businesses to achieve improved efficiencies in water usage is a tremendous benefit in our commitment to sustainability.”

Business Stream recently announced that it has secured a Gold rating by global sustainability assessors, EcoVadis, placing it in the top 5% of companies assessed. In recent years the water retailer has introduced a number of initiatives to help reduce its impact on the environment, which helped the company to lower its carbon footprint by a quarter within a 12-month period (April 2021-April 2022). The company has since launched a second pledge to reduce its emissions by a further 20% by April 2023.
