This group is the parent of the Cambridgeshire-based water utility, but it also owns social-housing maintenance and commercial-property firms. Anglian Water itself serves more than 6m customers in the biggest geographical region of any water utility in England and Wales, stretching from the Humber to the Thames Estuary. With its Love Every Drop initiative, it has made more than 100 sustainability commitments pledging to eliminate waste, accidents and pollution and halve carbon use by 2015. Sales of £1,396m and more than £6 billion of debt were reported in 2010 under managing director Peter Simpson.
