Transurban FY18 Sustainability Report

FY18 Sustainability Report Transurban 45

Health, safety and environment

Environmental leadership

Our environmental management principles focus on ensuring our employees and contractors are always working to minimise our impact on the environment. These nine key principles highlight the things that are most important for our operations while still allowing individual teams to define unique goals and initiatives. The key project highlights on the next page show these principles in practice. Applying these principles to our thinking and our operations drives us to innovate and find solutions that protect the environment, while also ensuring we meet—or ideally exceed—our statutory requirements and environmental targets.
