Employees volunteer to clear 50km of rivers
Our volunteering scheme continues to go from strength
to strength. During the year, over 40% of our people worked with partners such
as local Wildlife Trusts to help clean up the environment alongside 40 km of
rivers in England and a further 10 km in Wales.
Supporting clean, safe water and sanitation
As a founding member and long term supporters of
WaterAid, we’ve raised over £450,000 for the charity over the last two years.
We believe that our continued support can help WaterAid realise our shared
ambition for clean water, decent toilets and hygiene for everyone everywhere by
Helping farmers step up to the challenge
Prevention can be more cost-effective than treatment, particularly
when it comes to pesticides which can enter our rivers from surrounding fields.
Through STEPS we offer farmers grants of up to £5,000 per year to undertake
works which will help reduce pollution.
