Sustainability

> What is Sustainability?

Sustainability means much more than being environmentally friendly.

Through our Sustainability Strategy, we aim to address how the actions of the organisation today will influence tomorrow’s generation in regards to price, access, quality and supply of water and sewer services.

We strive to exceed customer expectations and through improved internal processes, innovative thinking and optimising resources we believe we can.

The Sustainability Strategy highlights our commitment to improve our efficiencies and keep pressure off prices.

As a water business our primary sustainability challenges include:

  • Energy – Water – Carbon relationship
  • Land management
  • Climate variability
  • Population Growth

 

> Ramp Up Resilience Project

We are proud to be a partner of the Ramp Up Resilience initiative led by Make a Change Australia.

The program focuses on the challenges of weather and climate and how they impact on people at a local level.

It aims to generate discussion and effective action for individuals, businesses and towns, which is relevant to them. It also aims to address the lack of knowledge, misinformation and apathy that sometimes exists around the issue.

From our perspective as a regional urban water authority, Ramp Up Resilience closely aligns with our Strategy 2030 vision and in particular, climate change as one of the drivers of change.
