Our Industry never stands still; there are always changes in governance and financial efficiencies, not forgetting the influence of customers, the environment, climate change and technology. Influencing and shaping our future industry relies on constant review and action in all aspects. The Institute of Water conference in Edinburgh will bring together distinguished speakers; focusing on the issues of retaining and improving on the good that we have strived hard to achieve, while still exceeding expectations from our own people, our customers, our supply and contractor chain and our regulators.
