Ofwat strategy calls for improved water sector environmental performance

Ofwat has today published a new strategy, calling on water firms to see the environment as an “integral” part of their business, inseparable from the services they provide.

The strategy, which was developed after a year-long consultation, consists of improving the environment, securing affordable bills, delivering resilient, reliable and high-quality services, and seeing companies act in “the long-term interests of society and the environment”.

On the environment, the water regulator said: “We want to see the sector work with stakeholders to restore and improve the ecological status of our water environments and add value to the land they hold and use. We want to see current and future customers protected from the impacts of extreme weather and pollution.”
