The Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) scheme is Australia’s urban water saving scheme. WELS reduces demand for high quality drinkable water by informing consumers about water efficiency at the point of sale.
The purpose of the WELS scheme is to:
conserve water supplies by reducing water consumption
promote the adoption of efficient and effective water-using and water-saving technologies
provide information for purchasers of water-using and water-saving products.
