Severn Trent

Severn Trent have made a number of long-term commitments in securing a sustainable long-term future for the business. As part of the plan, Severn Trent will invest £1.2 billion in delivering these commitments.

We will:

  • Deliver our Triple Carbon Pledge of Net Zero emissions, 100% energy from renewable sources and 100% electric fleet, all by 2030
    • commitment to develop science based targets with real reductions in carbon across scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions;
    • achieve our 100% renewable energy target by 1 April 2020 with over 50% coming from self- generation and the balance purchased through REGO-backed renewable sources;
  • Enhance the biodiversity of 5,000 hectares of land (1% of the national target) by 2027;
  • Extend our commitment to paying the living wage to anyone who works with Severn Trent in our supply chain, not just our direct employees;
  • Donate 1% of Severn Trent Water's profits (over £10 million) over the next five years into the Severn Trent Community Fund, investing in projects in our local communities
