SES Water has met its leakage reduction target for the 21st successive year.
One of the ways the firm has cut leakage was by trialling smart meters and installing them in 220 homes, allowing customers to track usage and identify leaks at an early stage.
Aiming to reduce further its impact on the environment, the utility has also increased its fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) to 12 in the last year – this is expected to deliver carbon savings of at least 43 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year and improve air quality in SES’s region, Sutton and East Surrey.
Chairman Jeremy Pelczer added: “I am very pleased that we’ve achieved amongst the very best industry performance in areas we know are critical to our customers.
“We have also continued to make good progress in reducing our emissions and contributing to the industry’s commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2030.”
