Process and types of certifications.


Water Footprint certification process.

At Aquafides we certify the production model of your company or organization from the point of view of the use of water resources. This certification is valid for three years if the annual periodic audits are passed.

To do this, we use protocols developed by committees of experts in which prestigious Universities (University of Alicante and Polytechnic University of Valencia) participate, based on the sustainability criteria of the Water Footprint for the certification of each production process.

Types of certifications.
