Sustainable and ethical sourcing of raw materials
As the first link in a sustainable supply chain, Alkane upholds stringent social and environmental standards for the mining and processing of our products. Our materials will be ethically produced onsite in Australia or via our exclusive toll partner, making them cost-effective and highly traceable across the supply chain.
Our mining and processing activities are carefully designed to occupy a small physical footprint, use low volumes of power, water and other consumables, and produce waste residues that are treated and stored with minimum impact to the environment.
We focus on protecting, nurturing and enhancing local biodiversity, as well as progressive land rehabilitation to ensure our sites are returned to stable and productive ecosystems once mining is finished.
Most of our products will be manufactured to customer specifications at either our operations in Australia or via our exclusive toll processing partner. This simplified and direct supply chain will bypass China, making it highly sustainable, cost-effective and easily traceable.
Our workforce conditions meet international occupational health and safety standards, with no exploitation or child labour. This includes the employees of our marketing and off-take partners in Australia and overseas.
We employ comprehensive systems of control and accountability, and administer corporate governance with openness and integrity based on the principles and recommendations of the ASX Corporate Governance Council.
