Environmental Management Plan

Denison implements an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) which addresses the Denison Operational and Development Area. The purpose of this Denison EMP is to:

  • Serve as a tool which describes the tasks and processes applicable in an operational scope which must be undertaken to facilitate compliance with internal and external commitments/conditions;
  • Provide connectivity between legislative and internal objectives and the associated resources developed to foster compliance;
  • Provide transparency and guidance with regards to the scope, application and access to internal systems;
  • Assist in providing an awareness of roles and responsibilities in Environmental Management;
  • Facilitate continual improvement in the environmental performance of Denison Business; and
  • Provide access to current copies of critical management plans, procedures and associated resources.

Social and Heritage Management

Comprehensive and effective community and stakeholder engagement is important to Denison. Community and stakeholder engagement on the Denison developments began in 2008 as part of the Australia Pacific LNG Project’s Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process. Key stakeholders involved in the EIS included the broader community, landholders, peak industry groups, First Nations, as well as local, Queensland and Federal elected representatives and officers from regulatory bodies, and environmental, agricultural and business groups.

Denison is committed to working in partnership with landowners and other stakeholders in and around its permit areas. Areas of high productivity farming, environmental sensitivity and traditional ownership are considered in depth at the planning stage of all exploration and development projects through our Social and Heritage Management Plans.
