Improving our environmental performance

Our goal, wherever we operate in the world, is to minimise harm to the environment, and maximise our sustainability.

Powered by solar

In our ongoing efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, Broadcast Australia launched the first of its 100% solar-powered transmission sites at Muswellbrook, NSW, Australia.

The 96 solar panels combined with 24 batteries can store 215 kWh of power, producing enough solar energy to run the Muswellbrook transmission system for up to 43 hours, with just 5.5 hours of charge time.

Serving a community of some 50,000 people, the Muswellbrook antenna broadcasts local medium wave radio services; local emergency services rely on our vital communications during natural disasters.

This pilot solar system is designed with the ruggedness and reliability demanded by the Australian climate. We’re proud to run this broadcasting site with renewable energy and look forward to installing solar power on more sites in the future.

Other environmental initiatives

We participate in a number of external initiatives – including Earth Hour and World Environment Day – to help improve the environmental performance of business.

To ensure minimum harm to communities in which we operate, and mitigate risk, we follow guidelines outlined in our Pollution Incident Response Management Plan.

Community

Connecting communities is at the heart of all we do. Wherever you are in the world – Australia, Hong Kong, London, New York, Toronto – we support your communities.
