The International Water Stewardship Standard is a globally-consistent framework that outlines the expectations of responsible water stewardship
Water Stewardship Australia (WSA) is the not-for-profit member based entity implementing the regional water stewardship program for Australia and Asia-Pacific. We are creating globally recognised water stewardship standards and certification procedures, supported by a credible brand endorsement system. We enable widespread stakeholder engagement from across the spectrum of industry, government, environmental and social interests.
Water users and managers are responsible water stewards, who protect and enhance freshwater resources for people and nature.
Promote responsible use of freshwater that is socially and economically beneficial as well as environmentally sustainable.
Environmentally sustainable water use maintains or improves biodiversity and ecological processes at the watershed level.
Socially beneficial water use recognizes basic human needs and ensures long-term benefits (including economic benefits) for local people and society at large.
