There are two main standards for water footprinting (very similar). https://waterfootprint.org/en/ and https://www.iso.org/standard/43263.html  I recommend the first one by the Water Footprint Network.  Both define concepts of blue, green, and grey water; and both provide approaches for calculating the footprint of a specific product or entire business.  The Water Footprint Network has more resources and case studies, in my opinion.  Keep in mind that water use (even "a lot") is not necessarily a negative - life, business, nature requires water.  Unlike carbon footprints where less or zero footprint is better, water footprints are a starting point for understanding when, where, and how water us used across your value chain. Sometimes less water or less pollution is indeed needed but often use is only defined in the context of water supplies in a given area.

Hi Sandeep,

Thank you for your answer. We use glass bottles, so as I understand, cellulose labels wouldn't affect to the recycling cycle.

Thanks a lot! I will contact them.

Best regards,
