The Business in the Community corporate responsibility indices is the leading benchmark of responsible business practice.
The Index examines the business strategy of around 150 UK companies to honour organisations that integrate and improve corporate responsibility throughout their business operations. The Index considers our activities in the workplace, environment, community, with our customers and suppliers and compares them to other leading companies.
We are one of only 15 UK companies to be awarded the highest possible rating of Platinum Plus status in Business in the Community’s annual Corporate Responsibility Index in 2011 having been one of the first companies to ever achieve it.
Louise Hunter, Northumbrian Water’s head of corporate responsibility, said: “We are very proud to have attained Platinum Plus status for the second time. The award is a reflection of our long-term commitment to responsible business practice, and also of the efforts of each and every one of our employees who’ve helped to build this into our day to day operations.”
