Co-fouder Jaap Feil: "important to continue work of WFN"

When the Waterfootprint Network ceased to exist, water veteran Jaap Feil was quick to jump in: "I thought it was important to continue the implementation of this valuable concept." He teamed up with Arjen de Vries from Acacia and Johan Oost (Wetskills). They contacted Arjen Hoekstra, inventor of the Waterfootprint. "Hoekstra was enthusiastic about our idea to build upon the work of the Waterfootprint network and focus on implementation of the Waterfootprint concept." They decided to divide the activities of the 'old' network. Now, the newly started Waterfootprint Network continues the scientific work, while WFI focuses on implementation. After the succesfull restart, Jaap is both enthusiastic and impatient. His aim is to help all sorts of organizations and sectors to reduce their waterfootprint. Secondly, he has the ambition to set up local hubs around the world. And thirdly, he would like to offer 'update subscriptions' to his clients. "Just like you would update your phone, you could update your water use. WFI implements the latest technology and insights and keeps your water use up to date."
