United Utilities Selects Copperleaf to Streamline Asset Investment Planning and Management

Vancouver, BC, September 8, 2022—Copperleaf® Technologies Inc. (TSX:CPLF) (“Copperleaf” or the “Company”) announces the selection of its decision analytics solution by United Utilities, the company responsible for providing water and wastewater services to over seven million customers in the North West of England.

United Utilities recognized the need to further improve its asset management capabilities by implementing an Asset Investment Planning and Management (AIPM) solution that enables the company to manage risk and value more effectively and ensure line of sight from planning to delivery.

The Copperleaf solution will enable United Utilities to make the highest-value investment decisions during the ongoing delivery of AMP7, and will facilitate a streamlined planning process to support the company in creating an optimal investment plan for the upcoming price review period, PR24, and beyond.

“Copperleaf supports our ability to deliver the best possible service to our customers at the lowest sustainable cost by enabling us to make the right investment decisions to meet our ESG, network resilience, and growth goals,” said Ian Nicholson, Head of Asset Lifecycle & Systems, United Utilities. “We will be able to capture and assess the costs and risks of maintaining our current infrastructure over the long term—and balance that with the need for innovation and new developments in the short term. Copperleaf provides us with a single platform for our investment planning and an adaptive value framework for optimal investment decision-making.”

“United Utilities is the sixth UK-based water company to join the Copperleaf Community. Our team has really enjoyed the collaborative spirit experienced throughout the project definition phase,” said Stefan Sadnicki, Managing Director for Copperleaf in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). “United Utilities has a high level of asset management maturity already and we look forward to working together to enhance their investment decision-making processes. It´s going to be an exciting project!”
