Our commitment to sustainability
We are aware that our global operations can have both direct and indirect impact on the environment. We attempt to minimise any negative impact on the natural environment. We are committed to identifying, understanding and mitigating our environmental impact, integrating this consideration into our strategic planning, management systems and day-to-day operations.
Our operations are diverse in nature and geographical location, including the prospecting, production, reclamation, processing, storage, transportation and marketing of natural resources. As a result, our environmental management considerations are complex with different potential types of impact, specific to individual departments or production sites.
We take precautions to ensure that our service providers manage our vessels and product storage facilities sustainably. We have contributed our knowledge and experience to improve general waste water management during ore concentrate shipping and to encourage engagement with this issue from the shipping industry.
We closely monitor our activities in and near environmentally-sensitive areas and comply with applicable laws, regulations and other requirements for environmental management. Our operations work to avoid the loss of any International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List threatened species.
