Due to these challenges, it is of paramount importance, and a core tenant of AquaNet’s ethics, that water supplies are increasingly more reliable and sustainable in the face of these challenges.

AquaNet 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.

People

The individuals involved with AquaNet are of the utmost importance, whether they are employees, customers, contractors, or the communities in which they operate. AquaNet aims to treat all people honestly, with dignity and consideration for their safety.

Places

The importance of location encompasses both the physical environment and the communities that are impacted by our operations. AquaNet strives to ensure that these places are in a more improved position than they were before becoming a part of that place, be that economically or by reversing environmental impacts.

Products

These are the services and materials we supply to our customers. AquaNet supplies these products reliably, safely, and with the quality expected by our customers and the community.

Processes

This incorporates the systems, policies, and procedures established across the AquaNet business, to ensure we exceed the expectations of society of being a good corporate citizen.

Sustainability Reporting

Water Utilities Australia, AquaNet’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, enabling performance tracking over the coming years as the focus remains on continual improvement.

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Water Utilities Australia, AquaNet’s Parent Entity, supports the United Nation’s 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 Millennium Development Goals.

The SDGs were established to address the challenges the world faces related to poverty, climate, inequality, health, economic development, environmental degradation, peace and justice. Water Utilities Australia’s progress in contributions towards meeting the 17 SDGs is published in WUA’s annual Sustainability Report.
