Arrium is committed to pursuing a high standard of environmental management throughout its operations. We strive for continual improvement of environmental performance, the efficient use of resources, and the minimisation or prevention of pollution.
Arrium recognises that steelmaking has inherent resource requirements and emissions intensity.
Arrium seeks to comply with applicable environmental laws, regulations and mandatory standards. Where these do not exist, we apply appropriate internal standards that reflect Arrium’s commitment to prevent or minimise adverse environmental impacts resulting from its operations, products and services.
Arrium maintains an Environment Policy that is reviewed on a regular basis. To read or download a copy of the the current policy, click here.
In NSW there are 13 Arrium sites that operate under an environment protection licence. At six of those sites this licence includes a requirement to undertake environmental monitoring. The results of that monitoring can be accessed through the following link: Please click here for our NSW Environmental Monitoring Results
In NSW all holders of an environment protection licence must prepare a pollution incident response management plan (PIRMP). The following list shows the Arrium sites in NSW that hold a Pollution Incident Response Management Plan (PIRMP). Certain parts of the PIRMP's for Arrium sites can be accessed through the following link: Pollution Incident Response Management Plans
EEO was introduced by the Federal Government in 2006 as a mandatory program for Australian corporations that use greater than 0.5 petajoules (PJ) of energy each year. The program operates in 5 year cycles, with the second cycle commencing 1 July 2011.
Corporations are required to prepare an Assessment Plan at the commencement of each cycle, which outlines how opportunities for improving energy efficiency will be assessed over the five year period. After the Plan is submitted to Government the corporation is required to prepare annual public reports which detail outcomes of the assessment process.
