Auditability is our competitive advantage and is strongly emphasised in the services we offer.
Core to our objectives is our belief in the auditability of reliable data and the ability to consolidate data from multiple sources for multiple reporting frameworks.
Aligned with this belief is the development of a unique approach to water reporting and disclosure, where we have developed the ability to consolidate water data collection for multiple reporting frameworks for the different industries including mining.
Workshops in Perth and Melbourne
As part of our development process, two water workshops were held to present our approach and to gather valued feedback and input. The workshops took place in Perth and Melbourne during March.
Amongst the topics discussed were; understanding the relevance of water reporting from our perspective as well from as a miner’s perspective, what happens to the reported water information and how it is used, and how this can impact the reporting organisation.
Water Master Template
Our Water Master template – a single customisable document to assist in gathering, organising, selecting, synthesizing and distribution for water reporting – was presented at the workshops with valued commentary received from participants regarding its relevance and usability, our approach, and improvements needed.
We have already incorporated several suggestions from the workshops into the template and have also consulted with and received feedback from a representative of the Minerals Council of Australia (MCA), who had previously been involved with the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM).
Whilst some functionalities and system capabilities relating to auditability will be released next year, we will offer the data collection template and services relating to determination of the reporting boundaries, setting up the data collection process, creating a chart of activities and customisation of the template.
We will also continue to engage with our clients to help them establish their water reporting services.
