Our long-standing commitment to sustainability is demonstrated in our leadership on renewable energy generation, sustainable management of our land, and dedicated programmes to support our people and our local communities. We’ve reported on these – and other sustainability metrics in our Annual Report and Accounts for several years.
But now we are going further. Over the next five years, we will be investing £1.2 billion in our sustainability ambitions, from climate and biodiversity to supporting our customers who need us most.
That’s why, as part of our commitment to transparent reporting, it’s the right time to tell you more about the environmental, social and governance commitments embedded in our business plan, in our first, standalone Severn Trent Sustainability Report.
Highlights of this report include:
- Our sustainability framework
- Our alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals
- Our first disclosure against the Task Force for Financial Disclosures (TCFD)
- Key sustainability metrics
The report has been developed following the principles of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and is accompanied by our first GRI Content Index (PDF).
