ABSTRACT
The article details the initiatives being carried out in the water industry of Great Britain to measure and reduce carbon emissions. Thames Water is one company that measures its carbon emissions at its wastewater treatment facility. Investments in on-site and renewable energy generation are being done by water utilities, and incentives such as the Renewable Heat Incentive are offered. The industry appraises its embodied carbon because of real cost-savings.
