Westgold is committed to responsible environmental management throughout all phases of mining. This includes the implementation of best practice and current industry standards when conducting exploration, construction, operational, rehabilitation, closure and post closure activities.
Our Environmental Management System (EMS), supporting procedures and processes, allows us to complete mining activities and limit impacts to the environment. We understand that in order to protect sensitive environmental values appropriate management measures must be in place and be implemented effectively. Westgold encourages innovation, seeks to continuously improve processes and explores new techniques and methods to manage all phases of mining and minimise environmental impacts.
Westgold is focused on meeting regulatory and community expectations and strives to achieve the best possible environmental outcomes. We see ongoing compliance with approvals, licences and permits, as well as continued stakeholder consultation and engagement, as integral components which should be used to demonstrate environmental impacts have been reduced and ensure environmental outcomes have been met.
