South East Water has launched its new climate change website providing information on how the water corporation is prioritising activities to reduce or eliminate its greenhouse gas emissions.

The information is transparent yet optimistic, outlining South East Water’s commitment to addressing climate change. It also provides an educational overview of how global rising temperatures could impact the water industry and its customers and community if people don’t act now.

South East Water General Manager Liveable Water Solutions, Charlie Littlefair said the organisation was committed to being part of the climate change solution, not the problem.

“As an essential services provider we know we have some energy-intensive operations so we have a big role to play in reducing our consumption and wherever possible, eliminating emissions.
Through this site we’ll be transparent about our progress but also focus on customer education about the growing impacts of climate change on water consumers and our network”.

The site comes as an extension of South East Water’s Climate Adaptation Action Plan, which outlines its risk-based approach to addressing climate change and explores how climate change might impact the safety, standard and affordability of water and sewerage services.

South East Water has pledged to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 45% from its baseline by 2025. They’re on track to meet this commitment, which supports the longer-term goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2030 for Scope 1 and 2 emissions.
