SLR provides sustainability advice to Port of Melbourne Corporation

Posted: Wednesday 15th May 2013

Leading international environmental firm, SLR Consulting, has been appointed by Port of Melbourne Corporation (PoMC) in Australia to provide expert advice as part of the port’s three year sustainability programme.

PoMC manages over 500 hectares of port land and more than 100,000 hectares of declared port waters, including 45 nautical miles of commercial channels. Its Sustainability Framework identifies four priority strategies (Decisions & Guidelines; Leadership & Engagement; Culture & Behaviour; Knowledge & Capability) to measure its future performance and manage its operations in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable way.

SLR’s scope involves providing specialist sustainability advice on a range of matters including sustainable procurement approaches, developing sustainable performance metrics and reporting frameworks, assessment and auditing processes and peer review of a strategic air emission program.

Antony Sprigg, SLR’s Technical Director Sustainability, said: “Increasingly, large organisations are setting clear targets for sustainability – realising the value it can bring, both in terms of regulatory compliance and corporate social responsibility but also to the bottom line. Our work for PoMC as part of its sustainability program reflects similar work carried out by SLR in other parts of the world for businesses across a wide range of sectors.”

Last year SLR supported Irish based international buildings materials group, CRH in the development of its Environmental Review. SLR also provides expert advice to private equity firms across the world on environmental issues. Recent projects include supporting Insite Equity in its acquisition of a major structural steel manufacturer in the south-west USA.
