102 Trees for 102 Years in Operation

In recognition of World Environment Day 2024, Bradken sites around the world are joining forces to plant 102 trees and shrubs, one for each year Bradken has been in operation.

Four Bradken employees are crouched to the ground planting a small tree, one holds a sign that says "World Environment Day 2024". They wear yellow hi-vis uniforms and white hard hats.
Sites from China, Malaysia, Australia, and India have already held planting events, with more to come throughout the year.
Part of Bradken’s annual Sustainability Month program, and contributing to help us deliver an optimised future, the initiative aligns both with this year’s focus for World Environment Day - land restoration, desertification and drought resilience - and Bradken’s commitment to sustainability, the environment and becoming carbon neutral by 2030 (Scope 1 and 2 emissions).
Pam Johnson, Bradken Global Sustainability Manager, emphasised the significance of this initiative in the broader context of our sustainability goals.
“As a large energy user, Bradken is committed to minimising its impact on the environment,” Ms Johnson said.
“We recognise that environmental sustainability is critical to the future success and longevity of our business and we’re prioritising actions that will help us achieve our environmental targets, including our goal of becoming carbon neutral.
“Land restoration and climate change are fundamentally linked. When we plant trees to create or restore greenspaces at our foundries and manufacturing sites, we increase our carbon storage which in a small part, and when combined with other measures being taken to reach our carbon neutral goal, helps offset our carbon emissions.
“No matter the job they do, our people each have a role to play in minimising our impact on the environment and we want them to feel proud to be part of a company that’s leading the way for our industry in emissions reduction.
“The experience of stepping out of their daily routines to participate in a tree planting created a great opportunity for conversation about the work we’re doing and for our people to connect with the company’s environmental sustainability goals in a hands-on and meaningful way.”
Through this tree-planting initiative, Bradken is not only contributing to global efforts in land restoration but is also fostering a culture of sustainability within the company, empowering employees to take active roles in protecting our planet and helping us deliver an optimised future.

Carbon Neutral by 2030

Bradken is on a journey to become carbon neutral for Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030. We know it won’t be easy, but we have a roadmap to reach our targets.
