Looking after our environment


Key environmental information at a glance.


Efficient energy management
 
Treating and pumping water and waste water uses a lot of energy.
Sustainability
 
We measure and publicly report our carbon emissions, set targets and take action to reduce emissions.
Climate change
 
Most scientists now believe that increasing emissions of "greenhouse gases", such as carbon dioxide, are causing global warming and climate change.
Downstream Thinking
 
Taking a lead from our award-winning 'Upstream Thinking' initiative, Downstream Thinking is South West Water's catchment-based approach to alleviating sewer flooding and reducing the likelihood of watercourse pollution through ecologically sensitive 'soft' engineering schemes.
