WA Government’s Sustainability Initiatives

The WA Government is committed to Western Australia achieving the Paris Agreement objective of net zero emissions by 2050 and also recognises the importance of contributing to Australia’s pursuit of the objectives of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

WATC, in partnership with the Departments of the Premier and Cabinet, Water and Environmental Regulation, and Treasury, have coordinated an intra-government working group to prepare an information pack for investors in Western Australian Government bonds.

The Information Statement articulates the State Government’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials.
