Wave wins multi-million pound contract with UK Ministry of Justice

National water retailer, Wave, has won a substantial public sector contract with the Ministry of Justice, following a competitive tender through the CCS Water framework.

The three-year contract, which commenced in January 2024, comes with an option to extend for a further year and is expected to generate annual water revenues of around £28m.

Social value formed part of the Ministry of Justice’s criteria for award of the contract, and Wave was able to demonstrate its social value credentials and customer focus through its forward-facing Social and Sustainability Promise.

The company is the third largest water retailer in the market and says it is committed to supporting customers to achieve optimum water usage, whilst minimising costs and environmental impact.
