Compliance with abstraction licences

 100% 100%

Compliance with abstraction licences - All our abstractions of water from the environment are covered by Environment Agency (EA) permits, which specify the maximum volume we are allowed to take in a given day and in the year. This measure records the percentage of total days which we are in breach of a licence at any source.
We targeted 100% compliance in every year.

There is no financial incentive associated with this measure.

In 2019-20 we achieved the 100% target as for the previous four years of this regulatory period.
