Water2business renews partnership with sustainable UK café group

National water retailer water2business has extended its partnership with ethical family-owned café group, Boston Tea Party, for a further three years. This will save the café business an estimated 7% a year on its water bills.

The renewal comes at an exciting time of growth for water2business, which recently announced similar extensions with Birmingham Airport and UK care group Advinia Health Care.

Over the next three years, the national water retailer, which serves over 82,000 businesses across the UK, will continue to support Boston Tea Party with the consolidated billing and account support that it is best known for. Building on the progress made to date, the two organisations will work in close partnership to develop the café group’s sustainability focus.

Boston Tea Party prides itself on its ethical approach in both the big picture business direction as well as the day-to-day running of it 25 cafes. In 2018, it became the first UK café chain to stop issuing single-use coffee cups. With water2business striving for ‘Service, Sustainability and Savings’, this extended partnership is a boost to its own environmental credentials.

Commenting on the contract renewal, Managing Director of water2business, Charley Maher, said:

“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Boston Tea Party for another three years. water2business is all about working in partnership with clients to not only save them money on their water bills but encourage them to take a sustainable approach to water consumption. This fits perfectly with Boston Tea Party’s sustainability agenda, and our dedicated Account Managers are looking forward to supporting them further with this crucial aim over the coming months.

“If we can save our clients money while placing ethics and sustainability front and centre of everything we do, then ultimately we are staying true to our values as a business and giving clients a strong reason to maintain their relationship with us in pursuit of their own environmental goals.”

Sam Roberts, Boston Tea Party CEO, added:

“Our purpose as a business is to Make Things Better. We’ve made a lot of positive changes within the business such as banning single use coffee cups, clingfilm and milk bottles and helping others do the same, and we continue to try to do things in a better, greener way, wherever we can. We are working to minimise our carbon footprint across all our cafes by tracking consumption and using green energy. It’s no different with water – we are continually working to reduce our water consumption, considering the flow rate of our taps and thinking of our actions.”

This news follows a successful few months for water2business, which recently announced its position as the number one ranked large water retailer for market performance compliance for a fifth consecutive year.
