Investment in the environment

Protecting Yorkshire’s environment is at the core of our day-to-day business, from supplying our customers with a reliable source of clean water, to treating waste water and returning it safely back to our rivers and coasts. All of this must be done against a backdrop of significant economic, social and environmental change, and an evolving regulatory framework.

Our leadership in environmental management is recognised nationally and we are proud to have again achieved a Platinum performance in the Business in Community Environment Index 2016, as well as holding the Carbon Trust Standard for carbon reduction since 2013.
