    The initiatives we support are clearly aligned with the goals and issues relevant to our business – environment, community development and community well-being.
  3. Collaborative 
    We foster long-term partnerships with mutual benefits and deliverables clearly articulated. The initiatives will engage multiple stakeholder groups and deliver outcomes that benefit a broad section of the community.
  4. Measurable
    Specific targets are set, clearly understood by both Unitywater and the recipient, reported and measured.
