Climate change and energy efficiency

Our Carbon Management Plan promotes greener travel, eco site cabins, and energy efficient equipment and practices. We aim to reduce the carbon intensity of our projects by 15% by 2015 (compared to 2010).

 

We recognise the need to adapt our business operations to respond to a changing climate. As a responsible business we offset all of our unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions; our carbon neutral status has been externally verified by Bureau Veritas since 2012.
