Anglian Water honoured with Queen's Award for Enterprise for sustainable development for second time
Anglian Water is today celebrating receiving a Queen's Award for Enterprise, the UK's highest accolade to recognise business success, for a second time.
The award made in relation to Sustainable Development, announced on the Queen's birthday, was awarded to the water company for demonstrating excellent positive impacts across a number of initiatives, such as reducing carbon and improving water quality, as well as continuing to put social and environmental prosperity for local communities at the heart of all it does.
In West Norfolk, its commitment to sustainability and the environment is already evident at its wetland site at Ingoldisthorpe, a major project funded by Anglian Water which opened in 2018. At the site, sewage works effluents are intercepted reducing ammonia and phosphate, which instead of going straight into the River Ingol, passes through four ponds serving as a massive biological filter with plants "mopping up" the nutrients.
