BC Iron recognises that achieving high standards of performance in our business is integral to maintaining our licence to operate. This, in turn, is directly related to our appreciation of the environment in which we operate and our ability to minimise our environmental impact.
Potential environmental impacts relevant to our business include:
- Airborne emissions (mainly dust)
- Chemical release to land or water (mainly hydrocarbons)
- Sedimentation of drainage lines
- Waste management
- Resource efficiency, including water and energy
- Biodiversity impacts
Our systematic approach to environmental management is a key driver to maintaining ongoing compliance and continued improvement in our environmental performance.
BC Iron firmly believes that it is everyone’s responsibility to act as custodians of the environment that we work in and this is reinforced through site-specific inductions and training programs.
It is also our assertion that encouraging innovative solutions to environmental challenges will support the sustainable development of our business.
