Environmental Impact Management
The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) describes the potential environmental impacts of the QGC Project and ways to avoid, minimise or mitigate these impacts.
In August 2009, QGC lodged a draft EIS (Environmental Impact Statement) to describe the potential impacts and benefits of the QGC Project on the environment.
The document was the result of over a year of stakeholder consultation, research and surveys by a diverse team of specialists.
The draft EIS received 40 submissions from government agencies, interest groups and interested individuals. In response to these submissions QGC developed the Supplementary Environmental Impact Statement.
Together, the supplementary environment impact statement and the draft environmental impact statement constitute the final environmental impact assessment for the QGC Project and describe the potential environmental impacts of the QGC project and ways to avoid, minimise or mitigate these impacts.
