Sustainability Specialist network
The Sustainability Specialist Network acts as a hub and filter for information on sustainability and as a forum to locate, share and develop information and best practice within sustainability. It will set the scene for the timely introduction of sustainable practices within the water sector.
Sustainability is acknowledged as an extremely broad issue and tends to be an overarching concept. As the issue overlaps with other specialist networks it is expected that collaboration between networks will ensure that duplication isn’t an issue and that interconnectedness is encouraged.

The primary objective of the network is to build capacity within the water sector by; 
  • defining, highlighting and recognising best practice within business systems, projects, processes, tools and practices; and
  • providing a networking forum and platform to highlight sustainability issues and engage with other sustainability-focused groups ensuring a combined and coordinated water sector response.

The Committee currently works with a Climate Change sub-group to deliver on coordinated and practical responses to issues identified in the Action Plan.
