ESG event 15 September 2021
We have a deep connection with the environment and the communities we serve and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations are at our heart and always have been. We have a strong track record of operating in a responsible manner to fulfil our purpose to deliver great water and more for the North West.
Increasingly, stakeholders, assess how companies approach responsible business through an ESG lens. We believe there is a close relationship between ESG performance and investor value and that it is important to disclose our ESG performance in an open and transparent way. Our comprehensive corporate reporting of financial and non-financial information in our annual report and accounts illustrates how we are meeting our commitments as a purpose led company, enabling stakeholders to see that we focus on what matters to them. Building on this, we will be hosting an investor webcast on 15 September 2021 to present our approach to ESG followed by an opportunity to ask questions about the plans we have to deliver value to all the stakeholders we serve.
