Western Areas is committed to maintaining our Social Licence to Operate through a high level of environmental stewardship and social responsibility. Western Areas environmental stewardship includes the responsible management of key areas including; water resources, biodiversity, air quality, material use and waste management, energy and climate change, and mine closure. In 2017 Western Areas released its first Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report.
Western Areas strives for continuous improvement of our environmental management systems. These systems are designed to prevent activities and conditions that negatively impact the environment.
As a stakeholder of the Great Western Woodlands, we are committed to biodiversity conservation and continue to actively support the conservation of endangered fauna endemic to our operations.
Western Areas undertakes voluntary reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and assessment of climate change risks and opportunities through the international Carbon Disclosure Project. Participation in the CDP provides a valuable tool for analysis of climate change-related aspects of our environmental performance. Western Areas also reviews operation energy consumption and aims to improve energy efficiency through continuous improvement initiatives.
