A brief description of the water management or benchmarking program:

We have a program for the rational use of water whose objective is to provide a general diagnosis of the water consumption of three ITM campuses: Robledo, Fraternidad and Floresta. With information obtained from the utility bills and the number of students and employees, we calculate the water consumption per person. Likewise, with the information obtained, we design water saving mechanisms, communication campaigns and environmental education.
