Sustainable Development Goals
We report Yarra Valley Water’s performance and aspirations in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and human rights.
At Yarra Valley Water we’re passionate about taking a sustainable approach to everything we do.
Our Communication on Progress (2020-2021) is incorporated in our Annual Report (2020-21) which outlines our social and environmental commitments and tracks how we’re advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and United Nations Global Compact Principles to achieve a better future for all.
Challenges faced in the water sector globally, such as climate change and population growth, call for a new way of working. Embedding the SDGs and human rights into our business strategy provides a global context for how our activities contribute to a regenerative and liveable future.This report tracks our work during 2020-21 on the priority areas of our 2030 Strategy, which are categorised under our three pillars of customer, community and environment. It covers how we are approaching the areas of human rights; labour; the environment and anti-corruption.
