Our commitment to sustainability
Sustainability is at the very heart of our activities and plans. To enhance sustainability within our activities, we use environmental, social and governance (ESG) themes to help us understand both the risk and opportunities to add value.
Why is it important to be sustainable?
Water is a precious resource, and the demand for water is increasing. The area that we supply has been classed as “water-stressed”. As a result, it’s increasingly important for us to act sustainably so that we can:
- Help protect the environment
- Ensure a reliable water supply
What is ESG?
ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance. It helps measure how well a company takes care of the environment, treats people fairly, and makes good decisions. It’s essential to how we deliver on our purpose, which is to provide high-quality drinking water while taking care of the environment for our communities now and in the future. We want to deliver value through our environmental activities and the services we provide, which is why we use ESG to embed sustainability in everything we do.
How does ESG help us?
ESG themes are integrated into the way we operate our business and the way we monitor our performance. They help us take a holistic approach to measure the long-term value of our activities.
