SA Water - Reaching net zero carbon

Reaching net zero carbon by 2050

As the world shifts to a decarbonised economy, we are working to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

This goal connects directly with our vision to deliver trusted water services for a sustainable and healthy South Australia and is aligned with commitments from the South Australian Government and the Australian water industry.

To help us reach net zero by 2050, our interim target is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 50 per cent of 2005 levels by 2030.

By adopting and integrating sustainable practices, including achieving net zero waste and net zero emissions, we will become a leader in environmental management.

We are already delivering outcomes that are driving down our emissions, bringing benefits for our customers and demonstrating the transition to a low carbon economy is within reach. These include the following initiatives:
