Management of Significant Waste-related Impacts


FY2023 Reportable Information

Actions, including circularity measures, taken to prevent waste generation in the organisation’s own activities and upstream and downstream in its value chain, and to manage significant impacts from waste generated.

The Group’s Waste Management Strategy was updated in 2023.

with the vision of minimising the waste we generate, optimising how we use resources and leading the way in creating a circular economy. Through the strategy, we are:

increasing the percentage of waste diversion (that is, redirecting waste from landfill) by 30 per cent by 2027, compared to our 2021 levels

ensuring 100 per cent compliance with regulatory requirements for proper disposal of hazardous waste developing awareness campaigns about waste management to conduct in 2024, as well as engaging key suppliers in collaborative waste management efforts

implementing a waste tracking system to monitor waste generation, recycling rates and key performance indicators and establishing monthly reporting

conducting regular audits, implementing waste management training for all our people and exploring innovative waste management techniques.

If the waste generated by the organisation in its own activities is managed by a third party, a description of the processes used to determine whether the third party manages the waste in line with contractual or legislative obligations.

Licensed waste management contractors are being used to transport the waste from the sites to suitable landfill and recycling facilities. The currency of their licenses are being verified as part of the contractual renewal process.

The processes used to collect and monitor waste-related data.

The majority of the waste is being transported by a single contractor and they submit a monthly report to Jemena which provides the breakdown of different types of waste that were picked up and their quantities. For other wastes that are picked up by minor contractors, the waste data is being manually reviewed and calculated. Waste Management Contracts were reviewed in CY2023.
