Benedict’s Sustainability Goal
Benedict aims to provide a safe workplace for its employees, embraces workforce diversity, embeds sustainable work practices whilst we deliver business outcomes for customers and endeavours to foster strong relationships with suppliers and local communities.
Benedict ensures that we leave the land in better shape than when we found it so that the community can enjoy its social and economic benefits for many generations.
Benedict implements sustainability goals through its core operational objectives:
People and community
Since 2010, as part of our commitment to the environment and the community, in conjunction with our Sydney Water Tender, Benedict committed to regular contributions to Greenfleet. This collaboration has ensured the realisation of our vision of ‘leaving the land in better shape than when we found it’. Over the past several years, our regular donations to Greenfleet have supported the establishment of biodiverse forests whilst offsetting our emissions.
Additionally, tens of thousands of trees have been established by our ongoing site rehabilitation programs.

Benedict leads the way in research and innovative solutions and technologies that minimize land degradation, reducing negative human impact, rehabilitating degraded areas and ensuring the optimal use of land resources for the benefit of present and future generations.
Benedict’s forward thinking and planning initiatives, environmental resources, management policies and environmental protection initiatives create a more sustainable environment and minimising existing land-use conflicts.
Rehabilitating our sites using high quality and sustainable materials ensures an improved environment for generations to come and at the same time offers substantial economic and social benefits for the community.
