About this report
This Sustainability Report discloses our sustainability-related performance for the financial year ended 30 June 2018 for the activities of businesses within the Downer Group (Downer EDI Limited).
This report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option, which emphasise the importance of identifying and reporting on issues or concerns that are material to our business and our stakeholders.
Downer has engaged KPMG to provide limited assurance on Downer’s application of the Global Reporting Initiative Standards (GRI Standards) for Defining Report Quality and Content as well as on selected sustainability indicators in accordance with the GRI Standard.
These selected sustainability indicators are:

- Total direct (Scope 1) and indirect (Scope 2) GHG emissions
- Total energy consumption and production
- Any significant environmental incidents or spills
- The total number and value of safety and environmentally related fines or successful prosecutions.
