I am pleased to introduce the NSW Ports 2019 Sustainability Plan, which outlines our proactive strategy and actions for the next three years.
NSW Ports plays a vital role in keeping Australia’s economy moving. We manage the key trade gateways at Port Botany and Port Kembla, through which millions of tonnes of freight are imported and exported to domestic and international markets each year.
Sustainability is integral not only to our business, but to the long-term success of the supply chain industries.
We recognise we have a responsibility to enact sustainable environmental, social and governance measures which minimise the impact our business has on the natural environment and the communities in which we operate.
Over the past few years we have gained greater insight into the expectations of our stakeholders, more clearly defined our sustainability risks and developed actions and indicators to build a more resilient business. We are proud of our achievements in the pursuit of sustainable transport and logistics, including in the areas of: infrastructure planning, development, environmental value, resource conservation, energy efficiency and stakeholder engagement.
The scope of this NSW Ports 2019 Sustainability Plan has expanded to include ‘whole of port’ goals beyond our direct operational control. Our sustainability strategy and actions are also aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
We are committed to operating ethically and transparently and look forward to further engagement with our communities and stakeholders as we embark on the roll-out of this plan and assess our performance in future years.
We hope you find this NSW Ports 2019 Sustainability Plan informative. We welcome your feedback by email to email@example.com.
