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).

ESG Information Pack

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, articulating the State Government’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials.  The Information Pack can be accessed via the Department of Treasury website.

The ESG information Pack was launched by WA Premier Mark McGowan on 16 November 2021.  Link to the Premier’s Media Statement.

Feedback and queries on the ESG Information Pack are encouraged through esg@watc.wa.gov.au.
