Climate change

Home / Residential / About Us / Governance / Climate change /

We're committed to preparing for the future and protecting our environment.

By working with the broader water inustry and delivering on the state government’s Take 2 pledge program, we are mitigating the effects of climate change.

We have pledged to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by over 24% by 2025. This is the equivalent of taking almost 800 cars off the road.

In March 2017, we submitted our pledge to state government, nominating that by 1 July 2025 our reported emissions will be no more than 32,080 t CO2-e y-1.

This commitment equates to a 24% reduction compared to our baseline of 42,021 tCO2-e y-1.

Our pledge is also supported by our Environment policy and our Energy Management Strategy.
