Sustainability

Sustainability is the commitment to 'creating lasting benefits through an integrated consideration of social, environmental and economic aspects in all that we do'.

For us, it really means meeting the needs of today without compromising the needs of future generations.

Our Sustainability Policy outlines our commitment to delivering sustainable road and transport infrastructure and is underpinned by six key aspects:

  • Sustainable Transport
  • Climate Change
  • Environmental Footprint
  • Behaviour
  • Governance & Performance
  • Funding & Financing

These aspects were determined through consultation with our Transport Portfolio partners and various industry stakeholders.

Our Policy and interpretation of sustainability is based on the definitions within the State Sustainability Strategy 2003.

At a National level, our work continues to assist Australia to achieve its obligations as a signatory to international conventions such as the United Nations Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Our Spotlight on Sustainability highlights some of the work we’re doing to deliver a transport network that meets social, economic and environmental needs.

Environmental Management

We have a responsibility to protect our environment, open to potential vulnerabilities caused by our operations and avoid and minimise our impacts while still meeting our road safety obligations.
