Environmental | Social | Governance

At Central States Water Resources, we are proud to release our inaugural Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) report covering the company’s performance, leadership, and industry best practices during the 2021 calendar year.

“The investments we are making allow us to transform small communities across the country. We pride ourselves in being able to bring Wall Street money to Main Street – filling funding gaps for small systems with poor access to capital,” observed Josiah Cox, President and CEO of CSWR. “These investments have allowed us to restore services to abandoned systems destroyed by category 5 hurricanes, revive wastewater plants discharging untreated sewage into public streams in state parks, and fix wastewater systems that were discharging untreated waste into rivers and serve drinking water to hundreds of thousands of people living downstream.”

This report includes key data in accordance with the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). We are eager to share our vision of transforming how water utilities work and we believe our report helps to further communicate our ongoing commitment to the environment, to our customers, and to our employees as we carry out our mission of providing safe, reliable, and environmentally responsible water resources to every community in the United States.
