Business plans and overall performance

Caring for our Environment

This is how we care for our environment. It explains how we are working across our business to play our part in tackling the twin global challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss.

Our customers and stakeholders have told us they want to know more about what we are doing for the environment so we have pulled it all together in one place.

 


We are committed to the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures [‘TCFD’], providing our stakeholders with transparent information on climate-related risks and opportunities that are relevant to our business.  


Sustainability report 2021

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 continue to report on our environmental, social and governance commitments embedded in our business plan, in our second, standalone Severn Trent Sustainability Report.

Highlights of this report include:

  • Our first interactive online Sustainability Report 
  • Our reporting on our most important sustainability issues
  • Our first disclosure against the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) framework

The report has been developed following the principles of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and is accompanied by our first combined GRI and SASB index.
