Environmental management is integral to Solid Energy’s business.  We aim to manage, mitigate and, where possible, prevent significant negative environmental effects from our operations.  Our people and contractors support this aim through our incident/hazard reporting system, by identifying and reporting actual or potential incidents we aim to continually improve our performance.  Non-compliant events are promptly reported to the local authorities which monitor our activities and we aim for a constructive relationship with these bodies.
