Environmental Management System

Our Environmental Management System (EMS) ensures we continually improve our environmental performance. We have adopted the principles of the International Standard ISO 14001 as the framework of our EMS.

The EMS covers all of our business activities including water and wastewater processes, maintenance activities, development and construction activities, community engagement and education.

We determine the limits and potential influences of our EMS to establish its scope to maximise continual improvement objectives. This is undertaken by considering:

  • internal and external issues that relate to us and have the potential to influence the objectives of our EMS;
  • compliance obligations relating to our environmental and business performance;
  • our activities, products, services and associated operational and administrative functions, including physical boundaries that relate to environmental performance; and
  • our authority and ability to exercise control and influence involving our environmental performance.
