We have signed onto a number of business and industry charters that support our commitment to deliver better outcomes for our customers.
Customer Service Charter
Our Customer Service Charter outlines our customer service standards and responsibilities and provides a clear understanding of what to expect from us.
We understand that our customers play a key role in how our network continues to evolve as we move towards a lower carbon future and provide greater choice in how energy is used and accessed. We are committed to providing excellent customer service and interacting with customers in a respectful and transparent way.
The Energy Charter
Together with our industry counterparts from across the electricity and gas supply chain we have committed to The Energy Charter.
This is the first cross-sector energy industry framework focused on better customer outcomes - delivering a more affordable, reliable and sustainable energy system for all Australians.
Each of the 18 signatories to The Energy Charter have publicly released their Energy Charter Disclosure Statements to report on their progress against the five principles.
The disclosures will now go through an Independent Accountability Panel process. This is a new independent process with many points of feedback and review which will provide directions and advice to individual businesses.
The panel's findings will set the baseline for ongoing change and improvement, and it will be up to each signatory business to turn their recommendations and findings into action.
