Sustainability

As part of a global community, we are committed to operating in a sustainable manner that ensures our people are safe and well supported, local communities prosper, and the environment protected for the benefit of all current and future generations.

Our Plan

Black Mountain Energy is committed to having an industry-leading ESG scorecard.

We have created a Board-level ESG Committee, including Rhett Bennett, Samantha Richardson, Marie Malaxos, Sara Kelly as well as senior advisors Ashley Zumwalt-Forbes and Lee Marshall to ensure we maintain our focus on sustainable operations.

Our Goal

Black Mountain Energy is focused on developing zero carbon emission natural gas as transition fuel to power a net-zero energy future.

Environment

Black Mountain Energy is committed to protecting the environment to achieve long-term sustainable operations. We aim to develop Project Valhalla as a net-zero emissions natural gas operation once in production. This net-zero mandate incorporates all Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions.

We benefit from the greenfield nature of Project Valhalla, which allows Black Mountain Energy to design the project from the ground up as we seek to eliminate all carbon dioxide and methane emissions from production.

Culture

We value our people – and we recognise there are differences in backgrounds, cultures, and demographic characteristics. It is integral to our business to foster a fair and equitable working environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. We are an equal opportunity employer committed to providing a safe, supportive and productive work environment to all employees and contractors.

We are working with two Traditional Owner groups in the region of Project Valhalla, building relationships on mutual trust and frequent communication, as well as a strong level of support.

Health & Safety

Our goal is to provide a safe and healthy work environment that is free from workplace injury and illness. This is achieved through the participation, co-operation, and commitment of everyone in the workplace.

Community

We have built relationships and become part of the communities surrounding Valhalla – we rely on these to operate and we aim to help them grow and become stronger through our actions. We want to provide opportunities to make a positive contribution through training and employment and by giving back in ways that can teach and empower these communities.

Corporate Governance

Our management, employees and contractors abide by the highest standards of personal safety and environmental performance, governance, and business conduct.

Our Board has adopted a range of corporate governance policies and directives that govern business conduct and expectations of our staff and contractors.
