AREAS OF FOCUS SUSTAINABILITY IN ACTION: ENVIRONMENT Operating within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area offers unique challenges and opportunities to innovate. Everyone working at DBCT has the responsibility to ensure their activities achieve long-term, positive outcomes to benefit future generations. The terminal operator’s Environmental Management System is certified to world’s best practice ISO 14001:2015, and is regularly audited by independent external auditors. Robust monitoring systems are in place to report onsite dust, water and noise data and undertake vegetation management. Our commitment to preserving the health of the unique operating environment is also demonstrated through active participation in the North Queensland Bulk Ports (NQBP) Marine Environmental Monitoring Program. The terminal’s industrial waste program has been in place for more than 15 years, and aims to address resource recovery. The employee led ‘War on Waste’ initiative also supports this program. DBCT workers play an important part in helping to achieve the terminal’s environmental objectives including identifying, developing and implementing site-wide environmental improvements. The terminal operator organises quarterly beach clean-ups at local beaches, and is a partner in the Mackay-Whitsunday Healthy Rivers to Reef Partnership.
