We’re focused on providing a reliable and secure supply of energy for Queenslanders, while simultaneously applying a continuous improvement approach to our environmental management and performance.

Several state and federal regulations outline how the energy industry should perform, but just complying with regulations is not enough for us.

When making business decisions at Stanwell, we give due consideration to environmental consequences and opportunities, in conjunction with social and commercial imperatives.

We have a duty to do everything we can to protect the environment and minimise our impact on it.

This means we will go beyond compliance, whenever it makes sense for us to do so.

An example of our beyond compliance approach, is our recent $2.2 million investment in a continuous emissions monitoring system at Tarong power stations, to allow us to monitor emissions in real-time. Based on that real-time information, we are able to adjust our operations and minimise our impact on the environment.

Another example is the ‘Flame Engine’ technology we developed at Stanwell Power Station, which has reduced our emissions and delivered significant safety benefits for the site.

We also recently implemented a real-time environmental monitoring network that measures air, noise and vibration at various locations around our Meandu Mine site. This monitoring enabled us to ensure we are being a good neighbour and operating within our Environmental Authority.

Stanwell is exploring opportunities to evolve and renew its portfolio to include low emission generation in response to changing market and consumer expectations. This includes investigating co-firing of biomass at its coal-fired power stations to reduce emissions intensity and a feasibility study for a hydrogen demonstration plant.

We will continue to deliver solutions that balance the needs of the environment and our communities, with the need to deliver reliable and affordable energy.
