We operate dynamically in a fast-paced environment and we know that to be successful, we need to ensure that we have the necessary systems and processes in place to enable us to meet our environmental obligations.
The areas where we operate are ecologically diverse and it is important that we find a balance between supporting the commercial nature of our business and ensuring the long-term net environmental benefits to the land and communities in which we work. Our Environmental Policy and Environmental Management System support and guide our operations at all levels.
We have achieved significant improvements across many of our environmental platforms. There is always more to be done as we continue to pursue opportunities to improve our performance. This includes the development of more lead indicators across the business, improved recognition of requirements for approvals and regulatory compliance, and encouraging ownership throughout the business.
We will continue to set our strategic environmental priorities which will further guide and target our approach to environmental management. We will also continue to improve our environmental performance through positive stakeholder engagement, a focus on greater operational transparency, enhanced environmental awareness through extensive research programmes and benchmarking studies, and building outstanding partnerships with local communities.
We place significant emphasis on improving environmental outcomes with our owner-operator sites, and have an Environmental Advisor based on site to assist with raising environmental awareness and supporting compliance activities. We continually review our environmental policy and procedures to ensure alignment with legislation and industry best practice standards.
