Dec. 11 /CSRwire/ - December 11, 2007 - Transurban Group has published its second Sustainability Report. The report covers activities for the financial year 2006/2007 and is available online at http://www.transurban.com.

Developments covered in the report include:

  • reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 10 per cent on Transurban's greatest source of Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions - the CityLink tunnel ventilation system in Melbourne, Australia

  • developed an in-house traffic model to more accurately assess the GHG emissions savings from travel on Transurban free flow toll roads compared with stop-start alternative routes

  • introduced a Financial Hardship Policy for Australian customers

  • achieved an 83 per cent employee engagement score in the annual employee survey

  • more than 28 per cent of employees contributed to Transurban's workplace giving program, which raised around $83,000 for five partner charities

    The report was independently assured and followed the GRI G3 Framework. GRI has confirmed the report's G3 'A+' application level.

    For the first time, Transurban was included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes World List of sustainable companies and the Carbon Disclosure Project 4 Leaders List (Australia and NZ). It is also a member of the FTSE4Good Index.

    For more than 10 years, Transurban has been a world leader in the development and long-term management of complex toll road infrastructure. Transurban employs around 800 people and has interests in seven roads in Australia and the US.
