FY23 Sustainability Report
Northern Star Resources believes in the authenticity of our environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices and we know that providing credible and transparent disclosures is imperative to our ongoing positive relationships with our stakeholders.
Northern Star releases an annual Sustainability Report which highlights how sustainability has become central to how Northern Star thinks and takes action.
Highlights from Northern Star in FY23 include:
- We are our proud to report our safety performance remains well below industry averages, notwithstanding an additional 1.5 million exposure hours due to several key expansion projects continuing development or becoming operational.
- We continued our progress towards achieving our Net Zero Ambition by 2050 through the execution of a Renewable Power Purchase Agreement at Jundee, for a renewable energy project which incorporates a solar farm, battery energy storage facility and four wind turbines, designed to reduce Jundee’s Scope 1 and 2 Emissions by between 35% and 50% by 2030.
- We have continued to develop our Indigenous relationships by proactively creating procurement opportunities for Aboriginal businesses with our Operations and removed perceived barriers to Indigenous participation in our supply chain.
- We are committed to attracting, retaining and nurturing our thriving workforce. We are pleased that we have maintained our rate of female employment above the industry average, recognising that more still needs to be done to grow a more diverse workforce. We also successfully promoted over 1,000 of our people internally, providing development and growth for our people whilst also retaining their talent and knowledge in the business. It is also pleasing to report that our rate of residential employment has been maintained for both our Pogo Operations in Alaska and Kalgoorlie in Western Australia, further supporting the communities we are fortunate to operate within.
