Environment & Cultural Heritage

Our Environment and Cultural Heritage Policy pledges our commitment to minimising our impact on the environment and maintaining cultural heritage values.

This means our people will:

  • Meet legal requirements and progress beyond compliance to innovation and excellence and drive continual improvement in management of health, safety, environment and cultural heritage
  • Protect the environment by preventing pollution and preserving biodiversity
  • Build a sustainable future through safe, efficient and sustainable energy solutions and natural resource management
  • Respect and protect all forms of indigenous and non-indigenous heritage
  • Understand and manage health, safety, environmental and cultural heritage risks during all phases of their work
  • Take action if they see any act or situation that may result in harm to people, the community, the environment or cultural heritage
  • Engage collaboratively to effectively communicate and improve our health, safety, environment and cultural heritage performance.

We are committed to managing our obligations under the Biosecurity Act 2014 (the Act) and the biosecurity risk that our network activities may pose to primary producers and other stakeholders.

To meet our obligations under the Act, we have a range of measures integrated into our normal work procedures to help preserve our biodiversity, protecting our economy, environment and the community.

You can read more about these measures on our Biosecurity webpage and Land Access Protocol Fact Sheet (PDF 1.2 mb).
