2023 Utilities National Awareness Days & Recognition Dates
The utilities industry plays a critical role in our everyday lives, providing essential services such as electricity, water, gas, and telecommunications. However, many of us take these services for granted and rarely think about the hardworking professionals behind the scenes who keep the systems running smoothly.
To raise awareness of the important work done by those in the utilities industry and to highlight the challenges they face, various awareness days have been established throughout the year. These days not only serve as a reminder of the vital role played by the industry but also provide an opportunity to educate the public about the importance of conserving resources, reducing waste, and adopting sustainable practices.
