Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning is tasked with creating liveable, inclusive and sustainable communities that support jobs and growth in Victoria.
DELWP recognises the link between the built and natural environment in the quality of our lives, and works to accommodate population growth while maintaining world class liveability and protecting our heritage for future generations.
Melbourne Water is owned by the Victorian Government and works in partnership with others to manage the urban water cycle in Melbourne. This includes managing water supply catchments, treating and supplying drinking and recycled water, removing and treating most of Melbourne’s sewage, and managing waterways and major drainage systems across the metro area and beyond.
Melbourne Water’s education program focuses on their responsibilities within the urban water cycle. The program aims to enable young people to better understand water use issues and how to make a positive change.
Sydney Airport is committed to working with others to ensure that aviation plays its role in protecting the environment.
Sydney Airport has delivered a number of significant projects with long term benefits for the environment, including:
- Protecting the nationally significant Sydney Airport Wetlands
- Developing and maintaining a major water recycling plant which saves the equivalent of an Olympic swimming pool of water every four days
- Delivering infrastructure to support cleaner and quieter aircraft included providing fixed electrical ground power to aircraft
- Achieving Level 1 ACI Airport Carbon Accreditation in 2014, and Level 2 in 2015
Climate change presents significant environmental, social and economic risks that will affect communities and the day-to-day operations of businesses.
Greenhouse gas emissions are a contributing factor to climate change and Qantas is committed to reducing its emissions profile. We want to play our part in global efforts to reduce emissions and to diversify and improve our energy supplies.
Aviation’s role in connecting us all over the world is energy and emissions intensive which is why we are actively exploring economically, socially and environmentally sustainable long-term solutions.
