Water Efficiency Fund

In 2007, PUB launched the Water Efficiency Fund (WEF) to encourage organizations to seek out efficient and innovative ways to manage their water demand. From 1 November 2020, PUB has enhanced the funding to further encourage companies to seek continuous improvement in water efficiency.

From companies intending to conduct water efficiency assessment to identify potential areas to improve water efficiency in their premises, to companies that are exploring feasibility of recycling projects and, companies who would like to implement recycling projects or adopt water efficient equipment, the funding categories would cover all stages from exploratory to actual implementation and co-fund projects that would enable companies to conserve water and improve water efficiency in their premises. The table below summarises the eligibility criteria of the various funding categories.

To find out more details of the funding categories, you can download the Application Form here.

Applicants are encouraged to discuss the proposed projects with PUB prior to submitting an application.
