Aurizon is helping grow regional Australia by delivering bulk commodities to the world. To achieve this, the Company has three major avenues: Network, Coal and Bulk. Aurizon is also a leading specialist in the services of rail design, engineering, construction, management and maintenance, and offers large-scale supply chain solutions to a diverse range of customers. The Company’s success and future value is linked to the key demand drivers of the Australian resources sector in global markets and the ongoing strength of the Australian economy. Aurizon is well placed to benefit from the continued long-term growth in demand for coal and iron ore, particularly from fast growing Asian economies such as Japan, China and India.
We manage our business activities in a way that is sensitive to environmental impacts. We continually seek to minimise impacts on the communities and ecosystems where we operate and continue to strive to deliver improvement in our environmental performance. Our priorities are on minimising emissions and energy consumption, and conserving and protecting local biodiversity. Our focus also extends to reducing, reusing and recycling waste. The Aurizon Environment Community of Competence (CoC) has senior leadership representation across the business. Our Environment CoC provides guidance on the management of significant environmental issues such as coal dust, noise, diesel emissions and energy reduction. We actively work with government, key industry stakeholders and customers to bring innovation and technical know-how to initiatives in biodiversity, coal dust management, waste management, diesel emissions, rail noise management and GHG emissions.
