American Water Works Company, Inc. is the largest publicly traded U.S. water and wastewater utility company.
American Water is proud to announce it was named as one of the 100 Most Sustainable Companies by Barron’s Magazine.
“We are extremely proud to be included on this list of 100 most sustainable companies,” said Susan Story, president and CEO of American Water. “American Water employees have always shared a deep personal commitment to our customers, our communities and our planet.
“Companies do well by doing good. Financial results are an outcome of doing the right things the right way, and we believe that how we do something is just as important as what we do,” added Story.
Last year, American Water published its biennial corporate responsibility report that highlighted the value the company places on being a good corporate citizen. Some of the key accomplishments in the report include the following:
American Water has invested more than $2 billion in capital infrastructure in 2015 and 2016 to build a more resilient system for our customers.
