Fortescue acknowledges and values the unique biodiversity of the Pilbara region and is committed to safeguarding biodiversity through responsible environmental management.
We employ internal biodiversity experts and contract biodiversity consultants to survey and monitor our operations and surrounding environments.
The findings from these programs, as well as the outcomes of research investments, are integrated into environmental management plans and procedures to ensure that ongoing review and improvement is embedded in our management and decision making processes.
Our mine sites and associated rail and port operations implement management plans to ensure impacts to the environment are minimised, including Conservation Significant Fauna and Fauna Habitat Management Plans, and Conservation Significant Flora and Vegetation Management Plans.
We are also involved in various offsetting and research programs that aim to benefit significant species.
