Safety, environmental protection and supportive communities are high priorities during all stages of our activities, from exploration and development to operations, decommissioning and reclamation. We strive to be a leader in these areas through a strong safety culture, a focus on the environment, an engaged workforce, and informed and supportive communities. As a result, we are committed to the following principles:
- preventing injury, ill health and pollution
- complying with and moving beyond legal and other requirements
- keeping risks at levels as low as reasonably achievable
- ensuring quality of processes, products and services
We are committed to continual improvement in all aspects of our performance to ensure our operations continue to be safe, clean and reliable.
Focus on long-term sustainability
Companies are under growing scrutiny for the way they conduct their business, and there has been a significant increase in stakeholder expectations for environmentally and socially responsible business practices.
Rather than viewing sustainable development as an ‘add-on’ to traditional business activity, we see it as integral to the way we do business, and have made it a strategic priority, integrating it into our objectives and compensation policies.
