"Orica will play our part in reducing the impacts of climate change because, as a global producer committed to acting responsibly and sustainably within the community, it is simply the right thing to do. We will analyse, plan for and act on the changes underway as the market and government regulation moves towards a carbon constrained future.
To sustain shareholder value, we will seek to minimise the level of exposure to the business from these changes and fully explore the commercial and abatement opportunities they present to us and our customers.
Orica will develop and publicly release a whole-of company position on climate change in 2017. In the meantime, we will continue to transparently report GHG and carbon emissions and actively participate in initiatives such as the Carbon Disclosure Project.
We will engage with industry peers and governments on policy development that supports the twin objectives of economic growth and GHG emissions reduction on a global and national scale.”
Group Executive, Strategy, Planning and Mergers and Acquisitions
One of the most important changes we all confront is the threat posed by rising global temperatures and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Orica has a role to play alongside our customers in minimising climate change and we will ensure the business is well prepared for the risks and opportunities presented by a carbon-constrained future.
