Environmental stewardship – our approach

VHM’s approach to environmental stewardship is based on:

  • understanding and managing the potential risks and impacts of our operations – from exploration, planning, research and project development, operation, rehabilitation and closure
  • avoiding environmental impacts where possible
  • mitigating unavoidable impacts
  • rehabilitating or restoring disturbed areas, and
  • offsetting to compensate for any impacts that cannot be otherwise avoided, minimised or rehabilitated
  • mitigating and minimising climate change impacts
  • striving for continuous improvement in all aspects of environmental performance against objectives and targets
  • communicating openly with community and stakeholders about environmental issues.
