At DBCT we strive to meet our environmental obligations as well as stakeholder and community expectations. DBCT P/L aims to minimise potential impacts to the surrounding environment including local communities.

Operating a Coal Terminal within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area is a unique challenge. DBCT P/L, its workers, service providers and contractors all have the responsibility to ensure DBCT P/L’s activities achieve a sustainable long term positive outcome that benefits future generations worldwide.

The terminal’s commitment to valuing the environment is demonstrated through our robust Environmental Management System, our environmental initiatives, and support of local organisations such as Conservation Volunteers Australia and Sarina Landcare, as well as our Environmental Management ISO14001 certification. Independent, qualified auditors assess the terminal’s Environmental Management System against the international standard. You can find out more about our ISO14001 certification on our Environmental Management System page.

We have identified specific areas of focus to ensure we meet our environmental obligations. These include:
