Rehabilitation Programs

Community_1In accordance with our Operating Licence, we manage an Environmental Improvement Plan (EIP), endorsed by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) to reduce our environmental impact. A key part of our EIP is a comprehensive rehabilitation, vegetation and landscaping program at the Birkenhead Plant.

The Birkenhead Plant contains sizeable land area, including lawns and extensive areas of shrubs and trees. We are committed to rehabilitating and maintaining these sites to provide shade, amenity, habitat, biodiversity, site boundary buffering, water collection and purification, carbon dioxide uptake and community involvement.

A range of plantings are planned for 2012 to continue to develop areas along Victoria Road on the western boundary of the Birkenhead Plant, the site adjacent to the staff carpark and also the Schroder Park Wetland.
