We work to minimise our air emissions and impact on the environment and on the local communities.
Why this matters
Our operations produce air emissions such as sulphur dioxide (SO₂), nitrogen oxide (NOx) and dust.
By working to manage these emissions, we can minimise their impact on local communities and the environment.
We monitor all material air emissions from our activities, and look for ways to reduce emissions. Wherever we operate, we comply with relevant regulatory limits for air emissions. Where these are less stringent than our own standards, we apply our higher standards.
We have processes in place to minimise emissions from chimney stacks, using monitoring stations and systems that help abate emissions
Engaging with communities on air quality is vital
We work to reduce the amount of dust that escapes from our operations – particularly at open-cut mines or mine roads, where dust is most prevalent.
For example, we apply recycled/reused water to roads, place barriers at mine perimeters, and cover products for storage and transport.
