Australia’s natural resources are an integral part of the Australian economy. The development and production of our natural resources must be conducted in an environmentally sustainable, socially responsible and economic manner.
Population growth, increasing demand for natural resources, rising costs and community expectations place a confluence of pressures to manage natural resources, and on the water industry to develop innovative and more efficient processes.
ATSE says our mitigation target must be
an effective response to climate science
and a fair share of the global burden
Climate change mitigation and adaptation: managing our climate and society
ATSE strongly supports emissions reductions across all sectors while taking steps to balance the economic impacts of this transition.
The governments of Australia should develop, and commit to, a new decadal strategy for national water reform that will ensure secure, sustainable, and equitable water supplies for Australian communities, industries and the environment
A whole-of-system approach with a focus on long-term
water sustainability targets is essential to improve the sustainability of Australia’s agricultural and
water ecosystems in the face of climate change and increasing competition for water
Existing water services and planning processes in the majority of cities in the world are poorly equipped to support projected population growth and slow to respond to economic uncertainties
To remain internationally competitive, Australia’s mineral resources sector must achieve world class productivity through enhanced collaboration, improved support for development and demonstration of more efficient technologies, and widespread adopti
This report examines the potential industry opportunities for wastewater resource recovery in Australia and highlights key learnings from initiatives elsewhere
Australian mineral resource exploration and development can only deliver positive economic and community benefits, and decrease environmental impacts, if it remains efficient and sustainable through ongoing investment in technological innovation
Australia needs to link stormwater management strongly to urban planning processes to maximise the wider benefits of green stormwater infrastructure and technologies to Australian communities
Water is our most essential substance, so we need to focus on optimising its use and stewardship

ATSE calls on the governments of Australia to develop and commit to a new decadal strategy for national water management
Response to the NWI 2014 triennial assessment of water reform progress in Australia
Direct potable reuse (DPR) – recycling directly to the drinking water distribution system – should be considered as a viable water resource management strategy alongside other supply options around Australia.
This report explores a framework for sustainable water management
in Australia that is able to adapt to future challenges through fostering
the principles of green growth
This submission emphasises the need for a continuing role of an objective and independent authority that reports on the progress of water reform and can adapt rapidly to further needs for water reform
Enhancing Australia's prosperity through technology and innovation
