We are committed to robust environmental management and performance to minimise our impact on the environment and surrounding communities.
Our approach to environmental management stems from our Group environmental policy. We work to minimise our potential effect on the environment and comply with relevant regulations. We integrate environmental considerations into our strategic planning, management systems and day-to-day operations.
Glencore's Values and Code of Conduct outline our vision and commitment to maintain and promote sustainable development across our operations. We work to avoid environmental incidents—our rolling target is to have no major or catastrophic environmental incidents.
Stringent measures in place
Our Australian operations and projects place a high emphasis on meeting all legislative and regulatory requirements. In many cases, we exceed these requirements.
Glencore’s global Environmental Management System (EMS) provides a comprehensive framework to manage environmental issues.
