WESFARMERS SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2017

Environmental stewardship

Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions decreased by 1.3 per cent compared to last year as a result of lower production levels across the plants.

Nitrous oxide abatement technology installed in CSBP’s nitric acid plants continues to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. An average 89.8 per cent total nitrous oxide abatement was achieved during the year, which equates to a reduction of 1,221,681 tonnes of CO2e.

During the year, remediation of the former Cresco fertiliser works in Bayswater, Western Australia was completed improving the site to a standard that enabled it to be sold for future commercial use and releasing the land asset for development.
