Earlier this month, the University of Loughborough hosted a conference on water industry performance. The event explored the themes of sectoral productivity and profitability – and approaches to cost assessment. Economic Insight Director, Sam Williams, co-presented our work in relation to retail cost benchmarking, alongside Loughborough‘s Dr Anthony Glass (an Associate at EI). Economic Insight routinely advises companies on cost efficiency performance, allowing them to better understand their relative competitive position. Papers from the event can be viewed here.
