We are pleased to launch our first Sustainability Strategy, which sets out our plan to embed and enhance sustainable practices across our business.
Our rail network is a critical component of a global supply chain that connects Western Australian people and products to the rest of the country and to the world. We believe we have a responsibility to ensure the sustainability of this critical asset for future generations.
Arc Infrastructure CEO Murray Cook said the decisions we make and actions we take today will have an impact on the longevity of the asset we manage.
“We recognise the responsibility we have to our people, the communities we operate in, the customers we serve and the environment around us,” Mr Cook said.
“The release of our Sustainability Strategy comes after spending the last year gaining a better understanding of sustainability from a global perspective and determining how we can apply this to our rail network.
“From there we were able to work with the Leadership Team and the broader business, as well as one of Western Australia’s leading experts in this field, Dr Jenny Pope, to identify and refine a list of initiatives that would help us achieve our sustainability goals.”
We’ve identified more than 40 sustainability initiatives, many of which are already underway, which will ensure we remain dedicated, focused and committed to sustainability in our management of the rail network.
The initiatives are broken into five themes – our people, our environment, our community and stakeholders, our customers, and safety and risk management.
Arc’s sustainability efforts align to the global Sustainable Development Goals set out by the United Nations. These 17 goals with 169 targets have guided us in how we can contribute to sustainability globally.
With the Sustainability Strategy now complete, we will spend this year focusing on delivering the range of initiatives identified. We expect to report on these at the end of 2022.
