Matching buyer need with seller offer
The UK Water Partnership is working in partnership with British Water, Future Water Association and the Department for International Trade to develop a comprehensive supply chain service for the UK water sector.
The UK water industry has a good global reputation through privatisation, world-class consultants and fair dealing in commercial contracts. The strong UK supply chain, large market, system efficiencies and robust regulatory framework have led to the UK being recognised as a world leader in global business adaptation to climate change in the water sector. The UK water sector has distinctive supply chain strengths, offering specialist technology providers and world class capabilities in the supply of tailored and integrated consultancy services.
Global pressures including population growth and climate change, are forcing water companies and the wider industry to adapt and invest significantly in water supply and wastewater treatment. This presents huge opportunities for UK firms to market goods and services domestically to water companies and industrial clients and to also export knowledge, technology and planning skills.
The supply chain database will allow potential customers to see what the UK has to offer, it will support UK trade missions and it will promote UK exports of goods and professional services by connecting international customers to UK suppliers.
