Sustainability Statement

Climate change is accelerating and is changing our world with increasing impact and volatility. Led by the
UN and other global forums (like COP26 and the World Economic Forum), there is broad consensus and
commitment to deliver on targets of “net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and 30% reduction by

There is significant momentum globally to change the way the world operates and behaves to build a more
sustainable future for the planet. The pace of change is increasing, led by the UN, global funders (World
Bank, ADB), Governments at all levels, regulators, companies, investors, peak bodies, activists and local
communities, amongst many other stakeholders.

In Australia, Federal and State Governments and Australian mining sector peak bodies (e.g. MCA, AMEC,
NSW Mining Council) have all stated their commitment to the principles of sustainable development and
alignment to global targets.


In this changing environment, Manuka is committed to building a sustainable business. We are aligned with the broad global objective of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. We want to play our part in
addressing the challenges we are all facing and contributing to meaningful solutions. As part of this
commitment, we will:

  • Align our sustainability program outcomes with the UN SDG’s (Sustainable Development Goals);
  • Build trust with all our stakeholders by engaging to understand material issues affecting each and
    addressing issues appropriately;
  • Continually assess and improve our progress against a range of internationally recognised standards;
  • Publicly disclose our sustainability performance.


We know that building a sustainable business is a journey. We believe we have a strong foundation on which
to build and to keep improving our capabilities. In our short time as an operating company, we have already
made good progress on the three key pillars of a sustainable business: corporate governance, environmental performance and social performance. We recognise that the integration of strong governance, health, safety, environment, social and community policy into all business decisions is essential to ensure the long-term success and sustainability of our business.


Manuka is committed to producing an annual Sustainability Report in conjunction with the Annual Report,
providing a transparent lens on our performance. In the leadup to publishing our first Sustainability
Report, we will:

  • Clarify and confirm our internal target outcomes and metrics,
  • Develop and evolve sustainability plans, initiatives and milestones, and
  • Put in place the tools and processes to capture and independently verify our performance.
