Water-user Doesn’t See The Need The Way You See It
As a green solution provider your challenge:
•You are marketing a service/process/product / Technology that does not even exist as a problem in most customer’s mind.
•You are ahead of your times. You see the dire prospect of the water crisis. To the customer, questions are still around cost -- despite the returns being as high, and the investment being relatively low.
•How reliable are you as a Service Provider, is another question.
What is WOW ASP
The WOW Accredited Solution Providers programme is focused on continuous improvement in Members’ green performance. After each completed step, Member companies are encouraged to promote them and continue the climb by selecting new activities from WOW's collection of green performance initiatives.
The WOW ASP certification process is entirely initiative based, so your company will receive points for each and every activity it completes.
Initiatives are organized by the business area you impact.
It is marked by the effort, the cost and the greening impact of the initiative.
It is a simple but flexible structure. It ensures your company can easily target and implement the efforts that best suit your company’s needs and opportunities.
WOW's simple but comprehensive sustainability assessment will help your company identify and communicate efforts you have already completed, while also helping to guide and formulate a plan for future efforts.
Member businesses deserve the positive recognition and reward of their commitment to sustainability. So WOW ASP provides a collection of tools and opportunities for Member companies to share, differentiate and be recognized for their greening achievements with customers, prospects, partners, regulators and communities alike.
