We consider our environment to include the local communities in which we operate, customer sites, our office locations and those destinations our employees travel through to provide services to our customers.
We are committed to achieving a situation in which we operate our support and logistics services whilst conserving resources, and without causing pollution to the environment or harm to human health.
In doing so, all our people are responsible for meeting or exceeding the environmental performance expectations of the business and its stakeholders.
We have entered a cooperative agreement with the Australian Government’s Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts. As a member of Greenhouse Challenge Plus we are meeting our commitments on the challenges presented by climate change.
We have environmental management systems in place to measure and improve our CO2 emissions. These systems are aligned to ISO14001 and our customers’ licenses under the Environmental Protection Act. We consistently develop and implement site environmental management plans (SEMP) for all sites under our control.
As a large consumer of diesel fuel, we are taking a number of energy efficiency actions that will reduce emissions and improve our Greenhouse Performance Indicators.
We are also supporting and working closely with our largest on-site clients where they have Operational Control status under the Australian Government’s legislative programs. We provide key data to these clients to enable their reporting under two programs:
- Energy Efficiency Opportunities, a legislative initiative of the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism
- National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting System administered by the Department of Climate Change. This will lead to the pending Australian Emissions Trading Scheme.
