Environmental, Social, and Governance

“By investing in the well-being of people and the planet, we are investing in the long-term sustainability of our business.” — Marty Kropelnicki, CEO

Our Commitment to ESG

At California Water Service Group, doing the right thing has always been a part of our DNA. We strive to make the world a better place and take pride in our long-standing efforts to provide safe, reliable water at affordable rates, be responsible stewards of the environment, give back to our communities, foster a positive and enriching work environment for our employees, and maintain the highest ethical standards. We believe that managing and addressing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities is essential to the long- term resilience of our company, our communities, and our planet.

Our ESG strategy is simple: We focus our efforts on the ESG issues that impact our business and stakeholders most, we integrate sustainability across our business, and we hold ourselves accountable to our commitments.

To bring our ESG strategy to life, we focus on five key ambitions:
