For Bradken, sustainability is about building the foundations for our future as we look to innovate and operate in ways that protect our planet, promote social responsibility and drive economic value.

It’s important to our employees, stakeholders and customers that we care for our people and our planet.

We will continually look for ways to reduce any adverse impacts of our operations and products on the environment and the communities we work in. This includes being more efficient with the use of natural resources and raw materials and reducing our energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. Our goal is for Bradken to be carbon neutral for Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030.

We‘re also looking to improve the social and economic equity of the communities we are part of by focusing on the health and wellbeing of our people and supporting gender equality and education.

Our environmental and sustainability responsibilities are integral to how we do business at Bradken, including complying with the relevant legal and other requirements applicable to our operations.

Bradken and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs)

Our approach to sustainability aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and is characterised by several key elements:
  • Commitment: We integrate the UN SDGs into our business strategy, demonstrating a strong commitment to sustainable practices.
  • Awareness: We raise awareness among our stakeholders about the importance of sustainability and the specific goals we are aligning with.
  • Innovation: Bradken embraces innovation to develop new products and implement technologies and processes that support sustainable operations.
  • Collaboration: We seek collaborations with partners, communities, and stakeholders to drive collective progress towards these goals.
  • Responsibility: We recognize our responsibility to contribute positively to the environment and society, reflected in our sustainability initiatives.
  • Resilience: We build resilience into our operations to withstand and adapt to environmental and social challenges.
  • Long-term Vision: Bradken establishes a long-term vision for sustainability that aligns with the global objectives of the UN SDGs.
While Bradken recognises the importance of all 17 UN SDGs, we understand that making a meaningful and substantial impact requires strategic prioritisation. Given our resources, expertise, and operational capabilities, we've chosen to concentrate our efforts on the areas where we can drive the most significant change.
This approach allows us to leverage our strengths and create a more profound and lasting positive effect on both the environment and society. Through our prioritisation of specific SDGs, Bradken is committed to maximising our contribution to global sustainability goals and making sure our actions lead to tangible and impactful outcomes.

Environmental Management

At Bradken, we're committed to preventing pollution and reducing the environmental impacts of our operations and products on the communities we operate in. We continually improve our waste management practices, prioritising elimination, reduction, reuse and recycling. Through waste segregation and recycling programs, we aim to minimise landfill waste.
Efficient resource use is a key aspect of our sustainability strategy. We optimise the use of raw materials, energy and water in our production processes. By identifying opportunities for energy, waste and water reduction, we reduce consumption and lower greenhouse gas emissions. This commitment to resource efficiency underscores our goal of sustainable growth with minimal environmental impact.
Many of our manufacturing locations are externally certified to ISO 14001:2015, and we are establishing a standardised environmental management system (EMS) across our global operations. This system will guide our sustainable practices enabling us to monitor, assess and continuously improve our environmental performance. Additionally, two Bradken manufacturing locations hold external certification to ISO 50001:2018 Energy Management Systems.
