Biodiversity and cultural heritage
AGL operates and develops energy generation assets on land that, in many cases, has value for reasons of biodiversity and cultural heritage in addition to its commercial value.
AGL’s health, safety and environmental management system outlines the way in which potential impacts on biodiversity and cultural heritage resulting from AGL’s activities should be identified, assessed and as far as is reasonably practicable, managed and minimised prior to activities being undertaken. All large AGL sites and projects also maintain risk registers which detail site specific risks and risk management measures related to biodiversity and cultural heritage.
Specific information about the management of biodiversity and cultural heritage is available on a project-by-project basis on the AGL website, documented in project environmental assessments, project environmental management plans and/or other specific strategies. Strategies of particular note during FY2016 can be found on the 2016 AGL Sustainability Report.
