At Aurizon, we recognise the global requirement to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations in the atmosphere, and that climate change and business sustainability are critical considerations for the growth and long-term success of our company.
As a consequence, we have implemented multiple systems and processes to improve the resilience of our business to the impacts of climate change, and reduce emissions from our operations through targeted energy efficiency initiatives.
More importantly, we have factored a changing climate scenario into the evaluation of future investment decisions.
For details on Aurizon's GHG emissions along with year-on-year change, view our 2017 Sustainability Report.
In 2017, we had our National Greenhouse and Energy Report externally assured, which includes our scope one and two emissions. A copy of the assurance statement is available here.
We have reduced our fleet's emissions intensity via the implementation of various of energy efficiency initiatives, including regenerative braking, driver advisory system and automatic engine Stop Start.
In addition to measuring and monitoring our GHG emissions, Aurizon also responds annually to the CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) Climate Change questionnaire. The CDP is an international, independent, not-for-profit organisation which compiles corporate climate change information for the investor community.
