Protection of the environment is a core element of our business. We aim to secure a high standard of care for the natural environment.
OZ Minerals’ activities require energy and water to extract, move and process ore. Prominent Hill and Carrapateena are in remote desert regions that have low annual rainfall and an arid ecosystem. Through effective organisational practices and progressive land rehabilitation, we aim to ensure that our activities have the lowest possible impact on the world around us.
Our activities are undertaken within the framework of mining approvals, lease conditions and the environmental licences established by environmental regulatory authorities.
We actively engage with regulatory bodies, government agencies, communities and landowners during the environmental permission and approval process. This ensures that all stakeholders have actively participated in and understand the environmental, social and economic impacts of the project.
