Reinforcing Gold Road’s environmental objectives, there were no significant environmental incidents reported in 2018. Gold Road continued to improve its environmental and data management capability to ensure ongoing environmental compliance.
Our exploration team changed to personal food containers and ‘keep cups’ to replace the plastic disposable food containers and coffee cups that were in use. We estimated these two small simple changes saved around 1.12 tonnes of plastic and 286 kilograms of coffee cups, preventing a total of 1.4 tonnes of waste from going to landfill.
In late 2018, we invested in a garbage compactor, which enables us to reduce the area occupied by our waste as well as allow for recyclable items to be cost-effectively transported offsite for recycling.
