Registration for the next exercise (IB2015) now open

On the 27th of February, registration openend for this years International Benchmarking exercise (IB2015). It's a special year for EBC Foundation, as it will organise its 10th International Benchmarking exercise. It’s also a very interesting year as the discussion in Europe on transparency and benchmarking continues to stay high on the political agenda as a result of the Right2Water Citizens Initiative. Benchmarking contributes to improving water services and raises transparency; the larger the network of participants, the more utilities can benefit from it. Since the first exercise, already 175 utilities from 40 different countries have joined the benchmarking efforts.

Objective of IB2015, is to benchmark drinking water- and wastewater activities with data of 2015. Next to a thorough assessment of a utility’s performance, EBC offers participants a platform/utility network to improve their services by learning from leading/best practices and innovations.

Other objectives are:

  • to raise transparency of drinking water- & wastewater services;
  • to enable comparing performance data with other data sources (such as IB-Net, the World Bank’s global database for water- & sanitation services);
  • to interest potential new partners (individual utilities, national water utility associations, etc.) to join and to strengthen the utility benchmarking network.
