Therefore, it is of paramount importance, and a core tenant of Kooragang Water’s ethics, that water supplies are increasingly more reliable and sustainable in the face of these challenges.
Kooragang Water strives to make every part of business environmentally, socially and economically sustainable, which we do by focusing on four key elements: People; Places; Products; and, Processes.
Water Utilities Australia, Kooragang Water’s parent entity, has committed to producing an annual Sustainability Report. The report has been established to set the benchmark of Water Utilities Australia’s current sustainability practices, which has enabled performance tracking over the coming years as the focus remains on continual improvement in sustainability practices, improving liveability and providing innovative water supply solutions.

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
Water Utilities Australia, Kooragang Water’s Parent Entity, supports the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) where possible throughout the business. The 17 SDGs were established at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in 2012, replacing the previously existing Millennium Development Goals.
The SDGs were established to address the challenges the world faces in relation to poverty, climate, inequality, health, economic development, environmental degradation, peace and justice. Water Utilities Australia’s continual progress in contributions towards meeting the 17 SDGs is published in WUA’s annual Sustainability Report.
