Sibelco is committed to reducing pollution impacts from its operations on the environment. In New South Wales (NSW), Sibelco is regulated by the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997, and by the nature of its operations is the holder of environment protection licences (EPLs) across most of its mining and processing sites in Australia.
Sibelco’s environmental management system drives continuous improvement in reducing adverse impacts on the environment. Through monitoring and the development of site-based pollution incident response management plans, Sibelco is able to facilitate efficient and effective response to pollution incidents. These plans identify the pollution hazards on-site, the proactive mitigation of risks and the response process in the event of a pollution incident.
A critical component of the pollution incident response process is the timely notification to relevant stakeholders, including regulatory authorities and neighbouring premises.
