Sustainability

Sustainability has always been the foundation of who we are as a business. The very nature of what we do demands that we take a long-term view to building and managing infrastructure that can sustain safe and reliable electricity services.

Our five-year sustainability framework supports our business to meet the expectations of our customers and stakeholders when it comes to safety, environmental, social and governance factors.

We developed our framework by extensively consulting with external stakeholders, as well as through researching and benchmarking with peers in Australia and overseas. The framework leverages the UN Sustainable Development Goals and focuses on four key areas. We will publish our report on our sustainability performance annually.

Safe and equitable workplaces

Responsible governance
