Appendix 9: Environmental performance against special objectives
As set out in the Sydney Water Act 1994, our principal objectives are to protect public health, to protect the environment, and to be a successful business. In implementing these principal objectives, Sydney Water has the following special objectives:
to reduce risks to human health
to prevent the degradation of the environment.
In applying these special objectives, we must give regard to a number of clauses in the Sydney Water Act 1994 and the Protection of the Environment Administration Act 1991. The table below provides links to the sections of the Annual Report and publicly available information that demonstrate our performance against these clauses. In addition, the Sydney Water Operating Licence Environment Report (Environment Plan 2011–16 Annual Report and Environmental Indicators Report 2012) details corporate performance information on our environmental objectives, targets and indicators.
