Australian mining engineering specialist Minetek has increased its focus on environmental responsibility.
There is increasing expectation among mining companies globally to operate in a manner that limits environmental impact, and with greater social responsibility. Based in one of Australia’s resources heartlands, the Hunter Valley coal region, Minetek is aware of the significance of environmental responsibility of engineering companies serving the sector.
Minetek is therefore, committed to sustaining a ‘best practice green approach’ in accordance with Australian Standard ISO14001.
Minetek's strong focus and dedication to sustainability in the resource industry has developed over many years of practiced design, working with clients in all continents across many nations. The company’s client base includes Rio Tinto, Xstrata, Peabody Energy, Newcrest, Anglo American, BHP Billiton and BMA.
The company does not compromise on its standards of environmental responsibility, regardless of the local political landscape or weak environmental laws.
Given that mining practices and environmental laws differ from one country to another, Minetek’s adherence to the Standards structures of advanced countries respected for environmental management such as Australia is well-received in all countries.
