Annual Environmental Management Report
The Annual Environmental Management Report (AEMR) is prepared to provide a summary of site issues and monitoring data for the preceding reporting period.
Annual environmental management reporting or review for CVO is specifically required by respective conditions in Mining Leases, the Environmental Protection Licence and the Cadia East Project Approval.
The AEMR reports on the status of approvals, leases, licences, environmental risk management, environmental control strategies, a summary of community relations and liaison, mine development and rehabilitation in relation to the Mine Operations Plan (MOP).
Project environmental performance in relation to the collective conditions of approvals, leases and licences for the previous 12 month period is also reported.
The AEMR also includes a review and any proposed improvements in relation to environmental monitoring and management systems and environmental performance. The AEMR specifies environmental and rehabilitation targets to be achieved during the following 12 month period.
Audits are undertaken to evaluate environmental compliance and performance across site. Audits are a good tool to identify non-conformance to approvals, licences, management plans and programs and commitments, and are used to facilitate continual improvement. In accordance with the Cadia East Project Approval audits are conducted by external independent environmental consultants.
