Alliances and Partnerships: What our customers say:
Anglian Water is the largest water company in England and Wales by area. For us accelerating effective innovation through effective collaborations is vital to the successful delivery on our strategic goals. To this end we worked with Cambium to improve the innovative potential of our supply chain via the Water Innovation Network (WIN). Cambium’s experience helped in the early days of establishing WIN by accelerating the development of trust and creating best practices for effective engagement with our members. These sound foundations have enabled WIN to grow to over 750 member organisations of all sizes. WIN continues to provide a vital source on new solutions that equip both ourselves and the wider water industry with innovations that enable a more sustainable future.
