Sustainable Development Goals
At Yarra Valley Water we're passionate about taking a sustainable approach to everything we do.
Our Communication on Progress (2020-21) 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.
