Usage Guidance

  • This metric is intended to capture the total potential water production/provision of the products that were sold during the reporting period. This metric should be based on the amount of water that could be produced/provided by the product during its lifetime. For example, this metric may be used by an organization that sells home water pumps that provide the homeowners with water.
  • When multiplying the water provision capacity of each product sold by Units/Volume Sold: Total (PI1263), organizations should use absolute number of units rather than volume. For example, if the water provision capacity of each product sold is multiplied by each unit sold, the total water provision capacity of products sold can be calculated.
