UK water utilities to plant 11 million trees to offset their carbon footprint

As the urgency of tackling climate change grows with each passing day, industries across all sectors are looking to implement different approaches to offset their carbon footprint.

In a bid to do just that, water companies in England have announced plans to plant 11 million trees – part of a wider commitment to improving the natural environment to support their goal of achieving a carbon-neutral water industry by 2030.

The firms will be planting trees on around 15,000 acres of land across England, as well as supporting work to restore original woodland and improving habitats that store carbon. While some of this land is owned by the water companies themselves, additional land will be provided by partners, including local authorities and regional environmental NGOs.
