Safe, responsible and efficient
Banks Mining operates an environmental management system certified to recognised standards and as part of this system there is an environmental policy.
The aim of our environmental policy is to support the continued development of our schemes whilst maintaining a high standard of environmental performance in line with the Banks development with care approach.
We recognise that our activities may have the potential to make a change to both the environment and local communities, and that it is our responsibility to maximise environmental benefits and minimise any impacts arising from these activities.
Banks Mining makes every effort to ensure that any effects of our operations are minimal on local residents. We conduct a substantial amount of work as part of the planning process to satisfy various environmental requirements in order to achieve a planning permission. As part of the operations we have strict planning conditions that we have to adhere to, and we conduct a range of compliance monitoring during the life of the operation. All of our sites are operated to high environmental standards. We also support the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI).
