  • Providing training to ensure our people are aware of their environmental responsibilities;
  • Ensuring all waste is disposed of and/or recycled in accordance with environmental legislation;
  • Make resources available to minimising risks and comply with local, state and federal environmental legislation with the goal of attaining best environmental practice;
  • Ensuring all incidents with a potential environmental impact are reported, recorded, their root cause determined and action taken to prevent re-occurrence;
