Sustainabilityat PLUS ES

At PLUS ES, sustainability is about operating in a safe, responsible manner that will enable us to deliver innovative and valued solutions to our customers that are of benefit now and in the future.

This means listening and responding to our customers, building a workforce that lives our values, and creating solutions that meet the needs of a rapidly changing energy market.

As a new enterprise, we are keen to provide sustainable solutions that lower the impact on the environment, actively address climate change concerns, and provide safe and practical solutions.

Our approach to sustainability is underpinned by our commitment to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Modern Slavery

The Australian Government has introduced the Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act 2018 that requires large entities such as PLUS ES to report publicly on their actions to assess and address modern slavery risks in their operations and supply chain. We will report each year on our actions to assess and address modern slavery with our Modern Slavery Statement.

Modern slavery describes situations where victims are being deprived of their freedom through threats, coercion or deception.

In servicing our customers we have a significant procurement footprint. Our relationship with our external partners who supply us with goods and services from overseas and locally is important in assessing and addressing modern slavery risks.

Our External Partner Code of Conduct, Sustainable Procurement Policy and regular engagement forums with our suppliers provides us with the governance tools and engagement to support our management of modern slavery risks. See or Modern Slavery Statement to find out more about what we are doing.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals in September 2015. The 17 goals are designed to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030.

We have identified five Sustainable Development Goals that are most important to our customers and business and this is where we will focus our contributions. Our Sustainable Development Goals are aligned with our business activities and it is these areas we believe our actions will make the biggest impact.

Gender Equality

We believe our workforce should reflect the diversity of our communities. Such diversity includes working to change the gender balance in our traditionally male-dominated industry.

Affordable and Clean Energy

Affordable, safe, and reliable energy are vital areas of focus for us. Providing solutions that support or provide affordable and clean energy choices is valued by our customers and communities.

Decent Work and Economic Growth

We recognise the inherent danger in the use of electricity and the safety of our employees and community is our priority. We also need to address the risks of modern slavery in our supply chains. By being a responsible organisation, we believe our services to our customers helps their success and economic growth.

Sustainable Cities and Communities

Sustainable cities and communities rely on access to safe, reliable and affordable energy. This energy may also come from sustainable sources delivered by solutions that are resilient to climate change. We continually seek ways to provide innovative and responsive solutions that support sustainable cities and communities as the outcome.

Climate Action

We are committed to understanding and addressing the physical and transitional risks and opportunities associated with climate change. Our customers and communities are seeking more solutions that address the risks of climate change and support the transition to a lower carbon world.

Environmental

Our Environmental Management System (EMS) is certified to international standard ISO 14001 in NSW. It is used to identify environmental risks and put measures in place to effectively manage these risks.

The EMS includes policies, procedures and training to provide a basis for continual environmental improvement.

The scope of our EMS applies to all activities, products and services carried out by PLUS ES which may impact on the environment. Our EMS applies to all of our employees and operations, including those carried out by contractors.

Our Sustainability Policy, Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Policy and Code of Conduct outline our commitment to the environment.
