Anglian Water has been recognised alongside national companies such as Marks and Spencer, O2, Aegis Group and Alliance Boots, for its approach to financial sustainability.

The water utility was highly commended, behind Marks and Spencer’s famous ‘Plan A’, in the Large Business category of the Finance for Future Awards.  

These awards recognise companies for their financial sustainability and focus on the financial drivers which are key to embedding long term sustainable practices and delivering innovation.  

In particular, companies which take a long-term view of capital allocation, investment and risk management to drive a better and more sustainable return.  

Scott Longhurst, Managing Director Finance and Non Regulated Business for Anglian Water, said: “The challenges facing the water industry and society as a whole go way beyond current economic uncertainty. Climate change and population growth demand nothing less than a new way of doing business.  

“This award is a very welcome recognition that we have begun that process. It’s recognition of the innovative steps we’ve taken and the novel ways we have found to finance them. It is also a great encouragement to keep going down this path and we’re very grateful.”  

Michael Izza, chief executive, ICAEW and judge said, “The winners and finalists tonight have shown the vibrancy of financial teams who drive the sustainability agenda in their firms and organisations. They have shown that there is a clear business case for using sustainable practices to create long term value and creating innovative resilient business models.”
