author: Viktoria Iskova
We are pleased to inform you that this year EBC Foundation once again organises an International Benchmarking Workshop, where representatives from participating utilities can meet with colleagues from other countries in person and can discuss important water industry issues. This year, the annual workshop is taking place November 15-17 in Porto, Portugal.


CMPEAE – Empresa de Águas e Energia do Município do Porto, the utility that provides drinking water and wastewater services to Porto, has kindly offered to host the IB2022 benchmarking workshop.


The EBC-workshop is the annual event where programme participants can meet to discuss the draft results of the assessment phase and jointly search for the way forward.

The workshop aims at discussing:

  • performance gaps and –trends and explanatory factors;
  • relevant topics and current challenges for water supply and sanitation utilities, including sustainability reporting (incl. preparation for CSRD requirements), water availability, asset management, energy efficiency, climate resilience and CO2-pricing;
  • sharing good practices and innovations;
  • and last but not least: having a good time together and strengthening the network!


The workshop is open to utilities that are participating or planning to participate in EBC’s improvement programme. If your company is interested in this topic and you would like to know more about the EBC-programme and the workshop, you may contact us at or
