We recognise that water availability is an increasingly significant issue for global stakeholders and we are committed to increasing the visibility of our water footprint, as well as reducing our water impact through robust environmental management.
Water, however, remains a non-material risk for our business because, for a company our size and within our sector, we consume a relatively small amount of water and do not operate water-intensive activities in water-stressed areas.
To improve the visibility of our water footprint and show how we effectively manage our impact, we participate in CDP’s Water Disclosure Project. In 2016, we earned a place on CDP’s Water A List, one of only two utilities and five UK companies to feature.
See our data centre for more information on our water use.
