As a business we have always had to consider the long term consequences of the choices we make. When we replace parts of our network that have come to the end of their life, we have to think about how the networks will be used in the future, and make sure they will be fit for purpose not only for today’s customers but also for their children and even grandchildren.

We recognise our responsibility to operate in a way that minimises our impact on the environment. We’re constantly striving for high environmental compliance standards and greater operating efficiency.

Over the last few years in particular, we’ve raised the profile of environmental responsibility and sustainability amongst staff and managers at WPD and we work closely with partners representing a range of environmental and heritage interest bodies.

Every year we publish our Environment and Innovation report. The report is aimed at our stakeholders and provides a useful central document which highlights our performance and targets whilst also acting as a starting point to link to more detailed information and reports.

A copy of our Innovation and Environment Report for 2017/18 can be found here.*
