Hydro Tasmania wins top industry award

Hydro Tasmania’s commitment to sustainability and transparency in its operations has been recognised with a national award for its annual report.

The 2011 Sustainability Report Award was awarded to Hydro Tasmania by the Energy Supply Association of Australia (ESAA).

ESAA started the awards to set high standards of sustainability performance and provide a platform for promoting good environmental, community, governance and workplace practices within the energy supply industry.

Accepting the award at an esaa function in March, Hydro Tasmania CEO Roy Adair said it was further recognition of Hydro Tasmania’s commitment to sustainability.

“Sustainability is embedded within the core values of our company and guides the business strategy,” Mr Adair said. “We are responding to community expectations that we will operate our business in a sustainable manner and that our reporting on activities will be reliable and meaningful.”

Hydro Tasmania’s annual reporting includes measuring performance against commitments, and having that reporting independently verified.
