Anglian Water Business is a leading national water retailer, supplying over 140,000 businesses and public sector organisations across the UK.
As any of our customers will tell you, we do more than just deliver water and recycle it. Our mission is to understand how each organisation uses water and find ways to help every customer reduce their consumption and save money – quickly and sustainably. We’ve been helping Scottish businesses to save since the market opened in 2008.
We know that businesses are in a unique position to protect the environment for future generations – not only do they have control over their own operations but they can also influence the behaviour of their employees, customers and even suppliers.
By supporting the VIBES Awards, we want to recognise other companies’ efforts to create a sustainable future for themselves and the communities they serve.
