Whitehaven Coal Limited : Annual Report 2009
16 ENVIRONMENT Whitehaven is committed to ensuring its projects are carried out in accordance with site specific protocols for environmental management. Each site has its own set of specific environmental management plans designed to ensure minimal impact from the operation on the environment and local community. Over the course of the year, Whitehaven commenced operations at its Rocglen and Sunnyside Open Cut operations. The commencement of operations at these sites followed a rigorous process of development of required environmental management plans and the implementation of effective environmental monitoring. The development of these two operations also culminated in the establishment of the Rocglen and Sunnyside Community Consultative Committees which meet on a quarterly basis. Each committee provides the local community with an opportunity to assess and comment on environmental performance at each site and raise issues of community concern. Both committees are operating effectively and provide an appropriate means of information transfer between the local community and the mine.
