Our workforce is comprised of an average of 180 employees; their safety and health and that of the broader communities in which we operate is central to the success of our business. Regardless of where our people are located, the business in which they operate or the type of work they undertake, we strive to create a working environment that is safe and free from occupational illness.
Due to the scale of our operations, we create a strong demand for products and services in areas where we operate. We recognise that supporting local and regional businesses to meet this demand can bring potential benefits to our host communities and regions.
Our approach to sustainability is about ensuring our organisation contributes lasting benefits through the consideration of social, ethical and environmental aspects in all that we do. We will only be successful when our workforce returns home safe and healthy every day, and we remain resolute in achieving this. Our overarching goal for environmental management is to minimize, and where possible eliminate, any impact of our operations on the environment. We recognise that the efficient and responsible use of natural resources is critical to the sustainability of our environment and we will continue to focus on reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and on improving our energy usage and efficiency. Sustainable development is core to our business strategy; we integrate health, safety, environmental, social and economic factors into both our training our decision-making.
