At Daracon, we take our responsibility seriously in ensuring sustainable development and effective implementation of leading environmental practices is applied to all of our operational decisions. Our commitment and ability to continually act in this manner is a measure of the success of our projects, and the company as a whole.

The team at Daracon recognise our obligation to succeeding generations to minimise our potential impact on the environment; whilst working towards improving the infrastructure we need to support our communities without degrading the environment.

We are committed to our operational objectives of preventing pollution, conserving biodiversity and using precautionary practices to minimise ecological impact. The commitment and ability to achieve these targets is a key component that sets Daracon apart from its competitors.

Integrated with our Quality System is an Environmental Management System that is certified by Bureau Veritas to AS/NZS ISO 14001:2015. This management system focuses on protection of the environment, prevention of pollution and sustainability.

Pollution Incident Response Management Plans

Daracon in accordance with changes made to the State Government’s Protection of the Environment Operations Act, now have a Pollution Incident Response Plan (PIRMP) for each of our sites that have an Environmental Protection Licence (EPL).

Each plan is relevant to local emergency response agencies, their precise contact details and how and when they will be contacted.

The plans also include at a minimum:

  • Description and likelihood of hazards
  • Pre-emptive actions to be taken
  • Inventory of pollutants
  • Safety equipment
  • Communicating with neighbours and the community
  • Minimising harm to persons on the premises
  • Actions to be taken during or immediately after a pollution incident
  • Staff training.
