Environment

West Beach Parks is a world-class tourism, sport and recre­ation precinct, pro­vid­ing excep­tion­al leisure expe­ri­ences. We are respon­si­ble for man­ag­ing the West Beach Recre­ation Reserve, an area of sig­nif­i­cant nat­ur­al assets, and its com­mer­cial and com­mu­ni­ty facil­i­ties includ­ing accom­mo­da­tion, boat­ing, a coastal park, golf­ing, leisure and sports. 

West Beach Parks is bound by the require­ments of the West Beach Recre­ation and Reserve Act 1987 and there­fore respon­si­ble for con­trol­ling a wide range of envi­ron­men­tal risks and opportunities.

West Beach Parks’ com­mit­ment to man­ag­ing envi­ron­men­tal chal­lenges, makes good busi­ness sense and can lead to enhanced safe­ty, oper­a­tional effi­cien­cies, cost sav­ings and the mit­i­ga­tion of risk.

Oper­at­ing a com­mer­cial busi­ness needs a bal­ance between envi­ron­men­tal, com­mu­ni­ty and eco­nom­ic outcomes. 

West Beach Parks is focused on all three, believ­ing they are com­ple­men­tary to one anoth­er and to long-term suc­cess. West Beach Parks is not only com­mit­ted to com­ply­ing with its leg­isla­tive and reg­u­la­to­ry require­ments but going beyond compliance.

West Beach Parks aims to dri­ve effi­cien­cy through min­imis­ing nat­ur­al resource use and embrac­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties in envi­ron­men­tal sustainability.

Our com­mit­ments:

  • Pro­tect and enhance local bio­di­ver­si­ty and cul­tur­al heritage.
  • Val­ue the envi­ron­ment and com­mu­ni­cate its val­ue to those who utilise the Reserve and asso­ci­at­ed facil­i­ties includ­ing cus­tomers, vis­i­tors, ten­ants and employees.
  • Meet and where rel­e­vant exceed applic­a­ble envi­ron­men­tal legislation,regulations and oth­er requirements.
  • Embed good envi­ron­men­tal prac­tices into every­day activ­i­ties, process­es and per­for­mance management.
  • Estab­lish mea­sur­able objec­tives and tar­gets aimed at pre­vent­ing pol­lu­tion and improv­ing envi­ron­men­tal per­for­mance along with pro­grams to achieve them.
  • Con­tin­u­al­ly improve envi­ron­men­tal per­for­mance rel­a­tive to growth by seek­ing ways to reduce the use of nat­ur­al resources and waste.
  • Pro­vide appro­pri­ate infor­ma­tion, aware­ness, edu­ca­tion, train­ing, super­vi­sion and resources as applic­a­ble to employ­ees, vis­i­tors, ten­ants and con­trac­tors to ensure a clear under­stand­ing of roles, respon­si­bil­i­ties and account­abil­i­ties for elim­i­nat­ing or min­imis­ing envi­ron­men­tal impacts.
  • Encour­age an equiv­a­lent envi­ron­men­tal com­mit­ment from ten­ants, vis­i­tors, cus­tomers, sup­pli­ers and contractors.
  • Con­sult and engage with inter­nal and exter­nal stake­hold­ers, includ­ing local com­mu­ni­ties and sup­pli­ers on rel­e­vant envi­ron­men­tal mat­ters includ­ing risks and opportunities.
