In addition to understanding and managing the direct business risks associated with climate change, we are committed to supporting the multilateral efforts to limit the global temperature rise this century to well below two degrees centigrade.
Climate change resilience
Port of Newcastle will be responsive to changes in global demand and national economic policy. Our diversification agenda positions Newcastle as Australia’s leading Energy Port, supporting the region’s transition to alternative energy solutions. Already we are the port of choice for windfarm developments in regional NSW.
In an effort to neutralise our operational carbon footprint, we have completed a comprehensive study that enables us to fully understand our emissions baseline.
We support surveillance programs for threatened terrestrial species that are present on port land. We are committed to protecting habitat links and supporting the establishment of new links.
