Water Footprint Network to Move Headquarters to The Hague

The Water Footprint Network is moving its headquarters from the University of Twente in the Dutch town of Enschede to The Hague.

The relocation of the non-profit group created in 2008 that focuses on more accurately measuring the consumption of water in such areas as industry, agriculture, food and beverages is effective Sept. 1, the WFN said Friday.

Arjen Hoekstra, considered the father of the water footprint assessment methodology, will remain in his job as a professor at the university. Users of his methodology include SABMiller Plc, one of the first brewers to analyze how much water it uses from food to pub across its entire supply chain.
