Autumn webinar series – ‘The Water Footprinting of Kiwifruit, Wine and Dates’ recording now available

We are pleased to now offer the recording of our second webinar in the Water section of our recently concluded free autumn webinar series ‘The NOW and NEXT of LCA’.

The webinar titled ‘The Water Footprinting of Kiwifruit, Wine and Dates’ was delivered by Dr. Brent Clothier on 11th May.

The webinar provided insights into a hydrological approach of water footprinting. Brent described studies of hydroelectricity in New Zealand, wine production in Marlborough and Gisborne, and growing dates in the UAE. Each study showed the importance of understanding local conditions and constraints in defining the focus of the study, and to generating useful outcomes.
