The article discusses the findings of the second "Utility Week"/Accent senior executive panel survey on the environmental agenda of the British utility sector. Eighty-four percent of respondents believed that the recession had not affected the environmental plans of their companies in any way. In terms of which particular sector should lead the green agenda, 79% thought it should be energy and water companies. Also noted is the pro-green stance of the sector, with 42% stating that environment should not be neglected just because of cost in a recession.
