Investing £566 million in the country's green economic recovery

In July 2020, our regulators and some Government departments set a challenge for water companies.

They wanted us to find ways to help the country's green economic recovery from the pandemic.

That’s why we've created our £566m Green Recovery programme.

It's the biggest investment of any water company in our green future.

The Green Recovery programme will deliver benefits and improvements to the environment and our communities.

Ambitious, innovative projects to combat climate change and recover from the pandemic

Our ambitious and innovative projects will help combat the challenges of climate change.

They'll also help communities recover from the pandemic.

Green Recovery projects will explore how we secure water supplies and use nature to combat flooding.

We'll do this while saving water, improving water quality and bringing benefits to our rivers and environment.

Creating over 2,500 jobs

The projects will also create jobs and support less privileged parts of our region.

Our Green Recovery programme will create over 2,500 jobs in the Midlands.

Those jobs can help people get back into work, at a vital time in the recovery.

Shaping the future

Our unique trials will act as a blueprint, helping shape the future of the water industry.

We're excited by these projects. Running until 2025, our Green Recovery programme will make a tangible difference.
