The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a blueprint for a better future. They represent a compelling agenda for a sustainable and prosperous future for both people and planet. They are also a platform for water utilities, governments, regulators and the community to talk about current and future priorities.

Importantly WSAA’s Paper includes a commitment from the water industry to the SDGs as well as 13 case studies from water utilities around Australia on their work to advance the Goals. The commitment articulates the intent of the industry to support and promote the SDGs in partnership with other utilities, customers and stakeholders.

Our desire is that this Paper will lead to more collaboration between water utilities, governments, regulators, other stakeholders and the community to enable us to focus on creating a sustainable and prosperous future.
