Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED)
The Public Sector Equality Duty aims to mainstream equality into public sector culture in practical and demonstrable ways, to eliminate unlawful discrimination, advance equality of opportunity, and foster good relations.
We have set ourselves four Equality Outcomes, which are detailed in our latest report:
- To ensure that disability and ethnicity are not seen as a constraint for access to our services
- To continue to increase our development of STEM careers for women
- To ensure that our recruitment and selection practices encourage applications and hires from all under-represented groups
- To demonstrate a positive commitment to work of our Belong Networks and support them in extending their reach both within and outside Scottish Water

Sector Inclusion Commitment
In February 2019 we made a commitment along with 31 other organisations within the Energy and Utility Skills Partnership to improve the diversity of our industry.
We’re proud to be part of this initiative which aims to develop workforce diversity and promote inclusion of under-represented groups.
It's based on five principles which support the development of a sustainable and representative employee base across the sector.
