- The Purpose of SWIG
- To be ‘The Voice of Sustainable Water’ by applying ‘whole system thinking’ to sustainable water management.
- Our vision is to see water being used sustainably in all buildings and spaces and to implement sustainable water management wherever possible.
- And our approach is interdisciplinary encouraging best practice and influencing policies.
- From the SWIG website: www.sustainablewater.org.uk you will see we are about delivering practical realities on the ground and hope that water sensitive project design will become a key component of developing best practice in ecological engineering.
