Environmental Policy

Commitment

AusHealth is committed to the protection of the environment, including prevention of pollution and sustainable resource use. We have established and implemented an Integrated Management System, as a framework for managing our environmental and operational performance, compliant with the requirements of ISO 14001:2015 ‘Environmental management systems – Requirements with guidance for use’.

To support this end, AusHealth has adopted an Environmental Policy.

  • Communicating environmental objectives and responsibilities and this of the Environmental Policy, to persons working under our control and interested parties as applicable;
  • Determining planned responses to reasonably foreseeable emergency situations which are appropriate to the potential environmental impact; and
  • Ensuring support and resources needed to enhance environmental performance are available.

Management is responsible for:

  • Implementing the Environmental Policy in their area of responsibility;
  • Promoting environmental leadership through increasing awareness and engaging employee support to improve workplace practices associated with sustainable resource use; and
