At QER sustainable development means transforming energy resources into quality products in a way that delivers environmental, economic and social well-being for today and tomorrow.
QER’s commitment to sustainable development embodies a number of fundamental principles that must be progressively demonstrated to our stakeholders and the communities in which we operate. These principles are:
- Health and Safety – our priority is to make sure that eveyone goes home safely at the end of every day
- Economic responsibility – value for shareholders and our employees, as well as the community
- Environmental responsibility – minimising the environmental impacts during all stages of mining and processing to meet regulatory standards and community expectations and therefore earn respect from our stakeholders and others
- Public accountability – developing resources with public consent. This will allow QER to earn and maintain a social license to operate
- Community engagement – building strong and enduring relationships through shared objectives and partnerships
- Resource and product stewardship – using resources wisely and efficiently to maximise benefits to current and future generations.
