SITE SELF MONITORING DATA
Operating under the control of site specific environmental protection licences
Visy's major sites in NSW operate under the control of site specific environmental protection licences issued by state environmental regulators. Licence conditions relate to pollution prevention and monitoring, along with cleaner production through recycling and re-use and the implementation of best practice. Some licenced sites are required to undertake continuous monitoring or periodic monitoring to provide feedback to plant operators, the community and to confirm compliance with specified concentration limits to regulators.
We are required to report to regulators immediately of any major pollution incidents and to report annually on the status of compliance of each site to the environmental licence conditions including a summary on all environmental monitoring data, required under the licence.
Recent changes to NSW Environmental Legislation, requires all holders of environment protection licences that undertake monitoring in accordance with Licence conditions, to now make the monitoring data publicly available. Licence holders are also required to report on any exceedences of limit conditions and correction logs on the status of any incorrect data that may have been previously published.
Commencing in July 2012, Visy will be publishing its environmental monitoring data from its major pulp and paper mill facility in Tumut on the Visy website. This site's comprehensive environmental monitoring program, monitors the impacts from its operations to air, water and land. Monthly reports summarising exceedances and/or correction logs will also be published.
Visy Tumut, operates under an Environmental Management System that is independently certified to ISO 14001. The environmental monitoring data is closely scrutinised by the trained and experienced operational personnel as part of the monitoring and review of the site's environmental performance under this system.
