NGOs Partner with Water Companies to Protect the Environment

Nine water companies have joined with twenty NGOs to create shared principles for sustainable water. Co-ordinated by Blueprint for Water they have created a set of shared principles setting out how the will work together to help leave the environment in a better state.

These exciting and innovative projects cover a huge range of environmental issues, from tackling pollution by ‘unflushables’ like babywipes, to natural water filtering, to working with farmers on more environmentally-friendly agricultural techniques.

Hannah Freeman of Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust, Chair of Blueprint for Water, said: “This is the first time water companies and nature charities have agreed how to work together ahead of business plans being delivered. With our waters under increasing pressure it is essential that businesses and environmentalists are more joined-up in acting as their guardians.”
