ERO Mining believes that responsible environmental management and superior environmental management performance is integral to an efficient and successful company. This will be achieved through leadership and the use of reliable systems, that provide timely and accurate information, in a transparent manner, to support effective decision making.
To enable environmental objectives to be achieved, each ERO Mining operation will:
Identify opportunities for improvement and set challenging standards that are congruent with community values and expectations.
Implement and maintain an environmental management system that identifies, assesses and effectively controls environmental risks to the business and community. Such a system must be characterised by rigor, simplicity and action.
Integrate environmental considerations into all aspects of the company's activities including exploration, and project development.
Select people with appropriate qualifications and capabilities, and provide necessary training to enable employees, contractors and suppliers to recognise the potential and actual impact of their activities to ensure they are able to manage their activities in accordance with this policy.
Consult the community on its concerns, aspirations and values regarding our exploration impacts, recognising that there are links between economic, social and cultural issues.
Communicate openly about environmental risks, incidents or emergency situations, or ideas for improvement, to enable effective decision making and action.
Demonstrate commitment to the public reporting of environmental performance and other requirements of the Australian Minerals Industry Code for Environmental Management.
Comply with all applicable legal and regulatory requirements as a minimum standard.
