CICCC Update – 26 April 2016 Meeting
Terminals CEO presentation to the CICCC meeting
The CEO of Terminals Pty Ltd, David Bozinoski, made a presentation to the meeting, a summary of which will be posted on the CICCC web site. The key point that David made was that the new shareholders, representatives of large Superannuation and Infrastructure Funds within Australia and overseas, have a strong focus on safety, and a long term outlook in pursuit of long term growth. In response to the comment from a member that it was unusual for a company to put safety over profits, David confirmed “Safety is first, we will not compromise safety for profits.”
Additional “principles” adopted by Terminals Pty Ltd.
David Bozinoski has adopted the additional principles to those already listed in the EIP, Section 4.1, which set out the foundations for Terminals’ Environmental Policy. The existing principles may be found on the CICCC website, under the Reports (see Environment Improvement Report). The newly adopted additional principles, which were recommended to Terminals by the CICCC, are:
- Being a good neighbour to its surrounding industries and wider community, by being open with information (consistent with privacy requirements of clients), and supportive of community development.
- Behaving ethically in its dealings with clients, suppliers, regulators and the wider community.
- Recognising the importance of sustainable development, and incorporating this goal into its decision making.
Solar panels at the West Melbourne (Coode Island) site.
The Terminals Pty Ltd Board has allocated funds for the purchase of a 100 kW solar power system at its West Melbourne terminal. The CICCC was delighted with this decision, as it has advocated the adoption of solar panels for a number of years.
Next meeting of the CICCC
The next meeting will be held at the Terminals Site Office at McKenzie Road, Coode Island, on Tuesday 29 August 2016 at 3pm.
Robin Saunders, Chair CICCC, 27 May 2016
