Sustainability

Our purpose is to lead Australia’s transition to a clean energy future. Renewable energy generation and sustainability is central to our business strategy.

Our employees, contractors and communities are all critical to the long‑term success of our business and the delivery of our business strategy.

  • Continuation of COVID-19 protocols to ensure our people and communities remain safe
  • Commitment to managing risk and driving safety leadership through our organisation and ensuring our contractors implement best practice
  • Strong focus on diversity and indigenous engagement within our workforce.

We seek to build strong, enduring and supportive relationships with our employees based on trust and mutual respect. Whilst acknowledging individual accountability and diversity of opinion, we strive for the achievement of collective results.

Our purpose is to lead Australia’s transition to a clean energy future. Renewable energy generation is central to our business strategy and the achievement of this purpose.

Genex is committed to providing responsible stewardship of the natural resources over which we have control or influence. We believe that preserving, protecting and, where appropriate, remediating the natural environment is essential for the wellbeing of current and future generations.

  • Strict focus on minimising disturbance 
  • Commitment to conserving and protecting the environments we operate in 
  • K2-Hydro converting disturbed mine site to sustainable energy generation 
  • 2 million tonnes CO2 abatement by 2025

We are deeply cognisant of the unique local environments in which we operate. We have a strong focus on minimising the disturbance we create in our operations by:

  • Our commitment to conserving and protecting the environments in which we operate, as illustrated by the “Recycling And Reuse Programme” which is being implemented at the Kidston Clean Energy Hub;
  • Rehabilitating a disused mine site to develop the sustainable and productive Kidston Clean Energy Hub; and
  • Increasing our focus on responsible sourcing of raw materials used in the construction of our assets.

Genex engages in extensive consultation through the life‑cycle of our projects to ensure we communicate with and are responsive to our communities, endeavouring to always act honestly and fairly.

Genex depends on the support of the communities that host our assets. We seek to ensure our operations make valuable social and economic contributions to our communities and at the same time do not negatively affect the safety of the community, the natural environment or heritage.
