About

Sustainability

We’re here for a sustainable future.

Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in our Sustainability Code and the way we work.

For us this means:

  • having a corporate conscience and proactively minimising our resource use, looking for smart ways to reduce our environmental and carbon footprint
  • protecting the environment (we are also ISO 14001 accredited)
  • engaging with communities and making a genuine difference in the communities in which we operate and participate
  • applying economic, technical, social and environmental considerations to our business activities and decisions.

Whether it’s a wind farm in India or a small-hydro system in Papua New Guinea, we provide the expertise to create a sustainable future through better power and water solutions. We are also committed to strengthening the knowledge and capability of the communities in which we operate.

Due to our unique asset-owner heritage, our commitment to sustainability is an extension of Hydro Tasmania’s long-standing reputation in the field. In 2004, Hydro Tasmania was tasked with jointly developing with Hydro Quebec the Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol, officially adopted today by the International Hydropower Association. Entura builds on this reputation and experience and now has one of only ten accredited assessors globally for the Protocol. We are also proud to have prepared the sustainability and due diligence guidelines for the World Wind Energy Association.

Our extensive involvement with our clients’ projects and operations has shown the value of early identification of environmental and social issues. It has taught us that an inclusive and proactive approach is the best way to avoid, minimise or manage potential issues. This is why we take an integrated risk approach to balance environmental and operational needs, ensuring compliance and avoiding costly rehabilitation or restoration of unmanaged impacts.

Through these commitments, we bring to life our vision to create safe and sustainable power and water solutions that make a positive and enduring contribution to our clients and communities.
