Water Stewardship

Ingham’s is a founding member and supporter of Water Stewardship.

Water is essential to every aspect of our operations and we understand that. According to World Resources Institute, by 2030, under business as usual conditions, the 55% increase in global demand for water will be met by a 40% shortfall. Therefore, it’s important for Ingham’s to understand our impact on water catchments and also how those catchments can impact on our operations and future. Our goal is to ensure that our use of fresh water is socially beneficial and environmentally sustainable in line with the International Standard for Water Stewardship.

 

ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL WATER STEWARDSHIP STANDARD

The International Water Stewardship Standard is a consistent framework for the expectations of responsible water management and conservation on an international level.

Water Stewardship Australia (WSA) is a not-for-profit, member-based entity applying the framework outlined by the International Water Stewardship Standard in Australia and Asia-Pacific. By doing so, we are working towards forming globally recognised standards and procedures for certification, supported by a credible brand endorsement system. We support engagement from stakeholders across the spectrum of industry, government, environmental and social interests.

The vision of the organisation is to protect and improve freshwater resources for both people and the environment through fulfilling our mission of promoting the responsible use of water in ways that are both socially and economically beneficial as well as environmentally sustainable.

Ingham’s is a founding member and supporter of Water Stewardship.

The following Ingham’s sites have formally committed to meeting the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) Standard: Somerville (VIC), Murarrie (QLD), Bolivar (SA) and Te Aroha (New Zealand).
