WESFARMERS SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2017

Other environmental reporting

We are committed to transparent and open communications about our management of the environment, with a broad range of stakeholders including customers, employees, investors, governments and non-government organisations. The following information sets out other environmental reporting areas.

Carbon Disclosure Project

We have an ongoing program of engagement with investors and continually look for opportunities to enhance our disclosure. The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is the primary investor benchmarking tool for climate change performance. Wesfarmers responds to CDP's 'Investor Request' on climate change through our annual voluntary submission which was scored A- in 2016. Wesfarmers’ responses are available on the CDP website.

National Pollutant Inventory

Two of our businesses, WesCEF and Resources, are required to report under the National Pollutant Inventory (NPI). Full details are available on the NPI website, with 2016/17 data available.

Potential environmental non-conformances

The activities of our divisions are subject to environmental regulation by various authorities throughout the countries where we operate. Licences granted to our divisions regulate the management of air and water quality and quantity, the storage and carriage of hazardous materials, the disposal of waste and other environmental matters associated with the entity’s operations. During the year, there have been no known material breaches of our divisions’ licence conditions. Details of WesCEF's potential environmental non-conformances can be found here.
