Making a Positive Difference

At Business Stream, we're committed to making a positive difference to our customers, our people, the environment and our local communities – which is why we launched our 'Making a Positive Difference' vision in September 2019. 

Going that extra bit further to make a positive difference is what sets us apart from other water retailers and what unites us as a business and as people. It is why we're proud to say we're...

Since we launched our Making a Positive Difference vision in 2019, we've already made some incredible progress – introducing over 30 new initiatives to support our ambitions. Over the past year we’ve reduced our carbon emissions by 50% (between April 2022-23), become a Young Person’s Guarantee Employer, delivered inclusion training to all of our People managers, offered free financial planning sessions to our colleagues in response to the cost of living crisis and developed our online water efficiency hub providing free online tools and resources to help our customers to reduce their water use.
