South West Water parent company Pennon Group wins Achievement in Sustainability Award
I am delighted to see that South West Water’s parent company, Pennon Group, has won the Achievement in Sustainability Award at the annual Public Limited Company Awards.
Judges highlighted a number of achievements in managing sustainability issues at South West Water including:-
· Environmental improvement projects – 90.3 per cent of bathing waters meet the European Union “excellent guidelines” up from 84 per cent in 2009;
· Increased “upstream thinking” – working with farmers and landowners to promote good catchment management; and
· Generating power through gas capture from anaerobic digestion plants at wastewater treatment works.
