Corporate responsibility

The water industry faces many challenges, both current and emerging, and so we take corporate responsibility very seriously.

From 2015 instead of an annual report that highlights our key achievements over the preceding year, our new approach will see us communicate our news more regularly on our Corporate responsibility webpages.  We believe this is a much more effective way of telling our story, doing so in a timely manner and helping to keep our customers and stakeholders up to date.

You can still read about our approach in previous years Corporate Responsibility Reports.
