Environment & Safety
Committed to protecting the environment
We are committed to protecting the environment and ensuring that all operations are undertaken in an environmentally acceptable manner so that shipping operations, maintenance activities, developments, tenant operations and other port activities do not adversely impact on the environment. Opportunities to improve the environment are identified and considered when planning for projects and port operations. Sound environmental performance is essential for long-term sustainability and Fremantle Ports' continuing business success.
Environmental matters at Fremantle Ports are administered principally by the following State legislation (can be downloaded free of charge from Western Australian Legislation):
- Port Authorities Act 1999 and Regulations (2001)
- Environmental Protection Act 1986 and Regulations (1987)
- Pollution of Waters by Oil and Noxious Substances Act 1987 and Regulations (1993)
- Contaminated Sites Act 2003 and Regulations (2006).
The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (which incorporates the Environmental Protection Authority) is the key agency responsible for protection and conservation of Western Australia’s environment.
Fremantle Ports operates an environmental management system that is independently audited and certified to the International ISO 14001 Standard. This system helps ensure environmental impacts of operations are identified and minimised; requires identification of objectives and targets, and measurement of performance; assists us to comply with environmental legislation
Fremantle Ports’ environmental management system (EMS) applies to all of our operations, assets, services
