Sustainability and environment

As Canberra’s supplier of essential water and sewerage services, we recognise we have a key role in the lives of our community through the protection of public health and the environment.

We’re proud of our role and we’re proud that sustainability is at the heart of what we do.

For us, sustainability means:

  • Enriching our neighbourhood
  • Respecting resources
  • Caring for tomorrow.

On World Environment Day 2019, we launched our 2019 Sustainability Snapshot.

The Snapshot sets out our practical steps towards economic, social and environmental sustainability. 

These are framed by our commitment to the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In particular, as Canberra’s water utility, we recognise the significant role we play in realising SDG 6: ensuring availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
