After three years of waiting, 71 representatives from 18 different countries in Europe and beyond, gathered on 17 & 18 November 2022 in Kraków, Poland for the IB2021 benchmarking workshop.
The 2022 benchmarking exercise (IB2021) so far has attracted 47 water utilities, which is about 15% more participants than in the year 2021. Data collection is in full swing.
In view of the Russian military aggression in Ukraine, EBC has decided to no longer admit Russian water companies to its European benchmarking programme. Existing participants have been disconnected from the programme with immediate effect.
Earlier this year, the European Union launched a Water Operator Partnership (WOP) Programme to leverage the demonstrated capacity of utilities to help one another reaching the SDGs.
On 29 June 2021 the Philippine Association of Water Districts (PAWD) virtually kicked off its benchmarking programme for water services.
Despite the COVID-19 challenges, so far 41 companies have registered for this year’s benchmarking exercise for European water- and wastewater utilities.
