MRC recognises that its operations have direct and indirect impact on the environment. Our goal is to manage these impacts to minimise, negate or improve the natural environment for future generations to benefit from. The Company takes sustainability very seriously, and has processes and policies in place so that we are always considering ongoing sustainability issues in planning and managing our operations and activities.
MRC’s approach to environmental management is supported by the Company’s environment, health and safety management system, which offers a foundation to guide the Company to achieve leading standards in these areas through all business activities – from exploration, planning, research and project development, through to operation, closure and rehabilitation.
The individual environmental requirements of each site are considered and site specific procedures and work instructions are developed in compliance with the standard. Regular audits are undertaken to ensure compliance with the standard. All environmental incidents are reported and investigated. To mitigate similar incidents, remedial and preventative actions identified in incident investigations are tracked through to completion. MRC provides annual updates on environmental management activities in its Annual Report.
