Today, sustainability is the key to the future success of mining and we carefully consider the long-term impacts of operations on our local communities. Sustainability means we consider the economical, environmental, cultural, and social aspects in the development of our operations as we strive to benefit local communities in the way we benefit from operating as their neighbours.
Sound environmental practices result in improved air, water, land, and heritage resources. Benefits accrue to the environment, our people, our families, the broader community, and future generations. They also result in credibility with local communities in being able to manage the local resource and access to further resources in the future. Your company should be committed to providing guidelines, management, personnel, and resources necessary to minimise potential adverse effects of its operations on the environment and human health.
