Our Environmental Standards

With our environmental standards, we utilize a risk-based approach to manage and mitigate the environmental aspects and impacts of our activities, products and services.  By maintaining a process of continual improvement in environmental performance our management oversee a variety of activities including:

  • Conducting environmental aspect and impact assessments
  • Developing project specific environmental management plans  
  • Reducing significant impacts to ALARP
  • Training, guidance and oversight for field personnel
Think, Then Act

We assess the potential environmental and other consequences of each new project, including ways they might affect communities and people’s health. This helps us to highlight ways in which we can contribute to local communities and protect the environment. The aim is to reduce our impact during the entire project life cycle.
