Despite the diversity of our operations, we share a common objective of environmental preservation as one of our key management priorities. Our Sustainability approach takes the long term perspective that natural resources, which are integral to our business, are our most valued assets and that we have a responsibility to protect them for our communities, businesses and future generations. 

ENERGY

Our objective is to contribute to the resolution of global environmental challenges, while at the same time reducing Camellia’s own environmental footprint.

We are working to calculate our Green House Gas emissions (GHG), Water and Waste. Our objective is to contribute to the resolution of global environmental challenges, while at the same time reducing Camellia’s own environmental footprint. We are expanding our green energy projects to optimise our energy resources, reduce GHG emissions and pollution in our communities. We view green energy sourcing as an ongoing process of positive change, benefitting our operations and the planet.

WATER

The most fundamental natural resource of all, water is the lifeline of all of our operations.

In varying degrees, our operations face challenges of water clarity, availability, disposal and distribution. With climatic changes, some operations will face greater water management challenges. In many of our operations water management impacts our direct and neighbouring communities. In light of these realities, Camellia is committed to ensuring water management takes a central place in our environmental sustainability agenda.

WASTE

Waste management is a central to our environmental sustainability agenda. We support procedures to maintain clean ecosystems, waterways and living areas for the benefit of our community and neighbours. 

Where applicable, agri-waste is recycled and used locally, or directly within the operation. In many cases this is a logical and cost effective exercise that follows the natural order of the ecosystem.

BIODIVERSITY

Biodiversity is central to the natural balance of our ecosystems.

At the micro level, we use Reasoned Agriculture which preferences natural pest and disease solutions and natural soil nutrient solutions such as tilling, cropping and mulching, where applicable. At the macro level, we support our habitats by encouraging natural woodland areas and water bodies to sustain the natural life of the area.
