Our organisational purpose is to provide exemplary water and sanitation services that contribute to the health and wellbeing of current and future generations. This purpose sets out our commitment to a sustainable future.
Price review and determination
Every five years all water businesses undergo a water price review run by the Essential Services Commission (ESC). Through the process of developing our price review proposal, we engaged more broadly and deeply with customers and our community than ever before.
We submitted our price submission, which sets out our proposed prices and service standards for the five years from 2018-19 to 2022-23, on 28 September 2017. Our submission was approved on 29 May 2018.
How we view sustainability
We take a big picture approach to providing our services, to achieve the best result for our community and planet.
We were the first water corporation in Australia to commit to the United Nations Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is a set of 17 global goals describing what a prosperous yet sustainable world looks like. We are contributing to the SDGs through every aspect of our business, from human resources to customer hardship to where we source our energy.
