What we’re doing
As an energy provider to the state, and as an environmentally responsible organisation, we’re striving to achieve sustainable development. This means putting community needs and environmental preservation front and centre of our business decisions.
As well as ensuring we operate as environmentally efficiently as possible, we’ve also committed to providing funding towards our sustainability goals, with a significant monetary investment going towards initiatives that ensure we keep doing the right thing for our environment.
We’ve got monitoring systems in place to ensure that we stay compliant with all our environmental requirements.
Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems: Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems, or CEMS, to measure the emission levels produced directly by our Collie power station, and provide a visual indication to ensure we’re operating to acceptable levels.
Ambient air monitoring: We’ve got technology in place in and around the greater Collie area to measure our emission levels and the air quality experienced by the wider community. This helps us ensure we’re doing the right thing by the community that supports us.
The Collie Air Shed Study: We partnered with Synergy South and South 32 to set up the Collie Air Shed Study. In this study, we set up strict meteorological and ambient emissions monitoring for a period of three years, to report on the emissions and environmental impact of our power station. This will be used as data to set up an air-shed model for the greater Collie basin.
Our consultants: We work with consulting firms that care about the environment as much as we do. They help us set up, calibrate, monitor, and report on our emissions, so we can make sure we’re always on the right track.
