British Water
British Water is a dynamic trade association with a varied membership of companies covering all sectors of the water and wastewater industry. Our members design, build, operate, maintain and provide critical solutions, technologies and research for water and wastewater assets at home and internationally.
We work to bring a leading and coherent voice on behalf of the supply chain and ensure our members have access to the information and contacts they need to enhance their business. We do this by representing our members’ interests to key stakeholders, connecting them to contacts to raise their profile and grow their business, and promoting best practice in the water and wastewater industry.
Catchment Based Approach
The Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) is an inclusive, civil society-led initiative that works in partnership with Government, Local Authorities, Water Companies, businesses and more, to maximise the natural value of our environment. CaBA partnerships are actively working in all 100+ river catchments across England and cross-border with Wales, directly supporting achievement of many of the targets under the Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan.
What is the Catchment Based Approach? From the source of our rivers to the sea, across our towns, cities, countryside and coasts – a healthy water environment is essential to all of us. It provides us with the water we need to live and to run our businesses efficiently. It reduces the risk to our homes and livelihoods of flooding. A healthy water environment means better places to live, where people and wildlife flourish. In the past, management of the water environment has fallen to Government, to private companies and to landowners, often operating in isolation. The Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) embeds collaborative working at a river catchment scale, delivering a range of environmental, social and economic benefits and protecting our precious water environments for the benefit of us all.
Our work addresses industry issues, challenges and opportunities to provide business and delivery improvement. We work collaboratively across the construction industry to identify good practice, develop new approaches and to identify and enable innovation. Networks and networking Our networks enable industry groups and stakeholders to share knowledge and exchange ideas through events, reports, meetings and web services. Networks and events also provide unique opportunities for networking and relationship building across supply chains and market sectors.
