Southern Water has been awarded the Carbon Trust Standard in recognition of our efforts to measure, manage and improve our carbon efficiency between April, 2008 and March, 2011.
The national accolade was developed by the Carbon Trust in 2007-08 to encourage good practice in carbon measurement, management and reduction by businesses and public sector organisations.
Southern Water’s green achievement is a result of increasing the efficiency of our daily operations and treatment works and improving the way we measure and report emissions. The accolade also reflects efforts by our staff to adopt environmentally friendly ways of working, including car sharing, teleconferencing and recycling.
Martin Ross, Southern Water’s Carbon Reduction Manager, said: “Cutting carbon emissions is a priority for Southern Water and we are delighted to have our efforts recognised formally with the Carbon Trust Standard.”
