2016 ABA100 Winner of the Australian Business Award for Sustainability

New Hope Group’s unique approach to achieving a sustainable, economically productive and environmentally healthy post mine landscape has been recognised nationally by being awarded the 2016 ABA100 Winner of the Australian Business Award for Sustainability.

The award, which recognises organisations that execute initiatives demonstrating leadership and commitment to sustainable business practices, was a result of New Hope’s submission outlining how it integrates a unique combination of three activities into daily coal mining operations at its New Acland mine.

Those activities being;

  • Scientific cattle grazing trials on rehabilitated mined land
  • Environmental conservation, protection and improvement works  to revegetate buffer zones along local waterways to create koala habitat and wildlife corridors, and
  • The use of recycled water for mining activities
