Carbon footprint

Western Water’s Climate Change Adaptation Strategy demonstrates our commitment to sustainability and awareness of the link between climate change and future water resources.

We are reducing greenhouse gas emissions through a combination of energy efficiency measures, renewable energy generation and the purchase of carbon offsets.

Biogas Cogeneration Facility

This $2 million facility captures methane emissions from the water recycling process to produce 100% renewable electricity to operate Melton’s Class A Recycled Water Plant.

In September 2011, the plant was the first of its kind to achieve carbon neutral certification from Low Carbon Australia.
