UK Utilities And NGOs Declare "Shared Principles"


Nine of the UK’s water companies have, along with 20 NGOs, joined together to create a set of “shared principles” to improve the health of the environment. The shared principles announced today on 10 September include: greater collaboration on policy and projects; promoting greater awareness of the links between water management and the natural environment; working together to achieve and build upon water framework directive obligations; sharing key data sets; and joint efforts to enhance and improve the resilience of water-based ecosystems. The organisations involved in the pledge intend for the shared principles to deliver “more effective joint working” on environmental and wildlife issues, including more on the ground projects.
