Our journey to creating a more sustainable future.

We are committed to effectively managing our environmental performance and recognise that we are responsible for helping our local communities and supply chains to deliver value through effective management of environmental risks.

We do these through measures such as managing air quality, avoiding or offsetting impacts on native biodiversity, minimising noise, waste to landfill and water use through our operations. We also actively work with customers and supply chain partners to bring innovation and technical insights into intiiatives like coal dust management.

In 2020, we also published our first Climate Strategy and Action Plan (CSAP). The strategy builds on our existing work in reducing our carbon footprint, as detailed in our Sustainability Report each year since 2014.

Aurizon has a Safety, Health and Environment Commitment and an established environmental management system aligned with the principles of ISO14001.

We recognise that we all have a responsibility to act on climate change – government, business, and the general community – so we can achieve an effective transition to a low-carbon future. As Australia’s largest integrated rail freight business, we can have a significant and positive influence on the decarbonisation of Australian rail freight supply chains.

Watch the short animation to get an insight into the progress we have made to date and how we are determined to do even more, as we continue striving to net-zero operational emissions by 2050.
