Plantations can have positive impacts on the environment by sequestering atmospheric carbon, protecting watersheds and improving water quality, conserving soil and enhancing biodiversity assets.
Plantations & native forest operations may offer opportunities for improved management of sensitive areas such as salinity recharge and discharge zones, rivers, creeks and drainage lines.
As is the case with all other rural landowners, Pentarch is required to protect native vegetation in accordance with relevant State, Commonwealth and Local Government regulations.
Pentarch Forestry™ has an Environmental Management System in place which demonstrates its commitment to develop and review environmental performance, including assessment and control of environmental risks.
A copy of our policy can be found here.
As part of its commitment to the environment, Pentarch Forestry™ holds Environment Protection Licences (EPL) for activities conducted at five of its sites within NSW and an Environment Protection Notice (EPN) in Tasmania with the relevant State Environmental Protection Authorities.
It is a requirement of the NSW Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 that all sites with an EPL must have in place a Pollution Incident Response Management Plan (PIRMP).
These plans and any monitoring reports required as part of a licence condition must be published on the Company’s website on an annual basis at minimum.
Information for all six sites can be found below.
