DBI has a governance and risk management framework in place that underpins its operating performance and is designed to meet or exceed legislative, regulatory and contractual requirements.

DBI is committed to industry leading ESG and sustainability principles.

  • Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of employees;
  • Protecting and monitoring the environment in which DBI operates;
  • Conducting business according to the highest ethical and performance standards; and
  • Supporting local communities through engagement and investment.

The Board of DBI is ultimately responsible for the management of ESG risk. The Compliance Risk and Sustainability Committee (which is a Board Committee) assists the Board in that regard by reviewing sustainability risks and issues, monitoring DBI’s performance on sustainability matters, and providing ongoing advice and recommendations to the Board regarding sustainability matters, among other things.

ESG Governance Framework

As part of its ESG framework and reporting, DBI is committed to publishing an annual sustainability report. Reporting on climate change-related risks will be aligned with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures’ (TCFD) recommended by the Financial Stability Board to provide disclosure for investors and other stakeholders relevant to evaluating climate change-related risks.

DBI, in collaboration with the Dalrymple Bay Terminal operator – DBCT Pty Ltd, issued its inaugural Sustainability Strategy in August 2020. DBI intends to issue a sustainability report for the period ended 30 June 2021 and report on its progress against the Strategy in September 2021.
