The company’s approach to sustainability is based on a modern definition of sustainable development, which is “ensuring a better quality of life for everyone, now and for generations to come.”

The South Island iwi of Ngai Tahu eloquently capture this principle in their vision:

            Mō tātou,ā, mō kā uri ā muri ake nei: For us and our children after us.


Bathurst supports this vision and is committed to delivering positive outcomes for present and future generations through careful stewardship of its assets, resources and activities.

People, communities, environment

At the heart of the Bathurst family of businesses is the safety and wellbeing of its people, the communities in which it works, and sound environmental management.

As a miner, Bathurst is immersed in understanding environmental impacts through geological surveys, environmental planning, management of infrastructure, and extraction of natural resources, regeneration of natural landforms and habitats and reinvestment in the conservation estate.
