Environmental Management System

Delta Coal is committed to operating in a socially and environmentally responsible manner through the application of an Environmental Management System (EMS).  The EMS is based on the ISO 14001 standard which provides  “best practice” specifications for implementation of an Environmental Management System.  It also ensures a consistent approach is taken to integrate environmental management at all levels of the organisation.  The elements of this approach are the 

  • identification of significant environmental risks
  • identifying and maintaining awareness of relevant environmental legislation
  • assignment of roles and responsibilities
  • establishment of procedures for internal and external communications
  • establishment of procedures for monitoring and measuring environmental performance
  • setting and reviewing objectives and targets for improving environmental performance
