Our partnerships focus on connecting with the WA community to build a sustainable water future. We proudly support organisations that align with driving the state's growth and vitality, increasing awareness of our environment and water sustainability, and enabling greater community involvement in making WA a great place to live and invest.

We’re proud to contribute to the community and build long term relationships that benefit our customers and the environment across WA.

Our key partnership focus areas are split into:

We support initiatives that inspire an appreciation of our environment and an awareness of the value of water.

The programs and projects include education, legacy and long term initiatives that build resilience in our communities to adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Greenbatch

Greenbatch Foundation aims to reduce the amount of plastic being used in WA through education and recycling programs.

Since 2018, we have supported Greenbatch’s mission in raising awareness of the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling plastic, in addition to supporting their work in identifying new opportunities for recycling plastic.

Our partnership supports the initiatives listed below:

  • Greenbatch event trailer – our support of the new event trailer (roadshow) gives Greenbatch the opportunity to educate the community about the importance of plastic recycling at Perth community events. The “roadshow” also educates the community on sustainability topics such as water recycling and renewable energy use. In addition, the event trailer is used for resource recovery of recyclable waste at events.
  • School Recycling Bin program  from July 2019 to March 2020 over 369,400 plastic containers were collected by Greenbatch through their school recycling bin program which our partnership supports. This is equivalent to 4.43 tonnes of plastic being diverted from landfill or export.
  • Education centre signage – our partnership contributes towards enhancements to Greenbatch’s learning space at their facility. The education centre runs school visits at the facility, where students can learn more about recycling, sustainable plastic use and the impacts of waste on climate change. The displays are part of an interactive makers space, providing an insight into the processes required to separate and recycle plastic.
 

Loop Upcycling

LOOP Upcycling is a Perth based social venture, which turns “waste into wonder” by transforming unused and redundant corporate workwear into custom made products.

LOOP creates long term, life changing jobs for those most at need in our community. Their workforce includes disability service providers, domestic violence shelters, prison industries and the long term unemployed.

We recently partnered with LOOP Upcycling and commenced a pilot upcycle initiative utilising redundant Water Corporation workwear, which will be used to create useful workplace items.

Partnering with LOOP to securely and sustainably dispose of our unused workwear in a responsible and ethical way, ensures we avoid sending waste to landfill and minimises our environmental impact.

Waterwise partners

We foster partnerships that support and encourage greater ownership and sustainability of WA's water. Our waterwise partners are committed to sharing our water efficiency messaging through community programs, projects and initiatives.

We support cultural initiatives that enrich people’s lives across WA by connecting them with water through creativity and community spirit.

Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company

Yirra Yaakin, which means ‘stand tall’ in Noongar language, is one of Australia’s leading Aboriginal performing arts organisations dedicated to bringing First Nations’ stories to the world through theatre, in an exciting and engaging way.

Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company aims to ensure Aboriginal theatre provides opportunities for Aboriginal artists at all levels of theatre creation and production.

As part of our long term partnership with Yirra Yaakin, we’re sponsoring the Bilya Kaatijin play school tours across metro and regional WA.

Bilya Kaatijin (which means ‘fresh water knowledge’ in Noongar) is the fourth and final story in Yirra Yaakin’s Kaatijin series.

Connecting stories from Noongar land to Wonguktha land, Aotearoa New Zealand to the Kikuyu people of Kenya, Bilya Kaatijin will teach audiences about the importance of water to First Nations people around the world.

The play directly aligns with our initiative to build understanding and appreciation of nature and the conservation of water through sustainable practices.

We support organisations that allow us to enrich people's lives across WA  through community engagement and spirit.

Clontarf Foundation

We’re proud to partner with Clontarf Foundation in supporting their Educational Engagement and Life Skills program that operates through their academies across WA.

Their mentoring programs operate in a supportive environment at school sites, where Aboriginal students engage in academy activities which focus on leadership, employment and well-being.

We support the Foundation through engaging with Clontarf participants in a range of activities, such as hosting worksite visits and supporting employment forums to develop employment skills of the students.
