Oceana's Environmental Policy for all activities is underpinned by an approach that seeks to utilise natural resources in a sustainable, efficient and environmentally responsible manner.
Companies globally are challenged to balance competing demands, such as increasing shareholder value, with sustainable business practices. As such, Oceana recognises that practices introduced today have a long-term impact for future generations and that its operations impact the environment significantly.
Oceana monitors and manages the use of all material resources across the business. The table below provides the usage trend for the last 5 years.Oceana Resource Table 2013

Strategy, to give effect to the policy, is reviewed and updated regularly at executive and senior management level.
