Our Corporate Strategy Miromaliko Baato
Our Corporate Strategy builds on our strong track record to provide an ambitious blueprint to create a sustainable water future for all.
In Gathung language, Miromaliko Baato means saving water. This is the closest way we can express the term ‘water is life’ using one of the languages of the Traditional Custodians of the land in which we operate. The concept that water is life is paramount to First Nations peoples as it directly links to the value of water, and the history and teaching through generations around respect for the land and our water.
