Our Procurement policy is available here:
All of Lion’s sites conduct environmental monitoring to ensure we meet our commitment and obligations to protecting the environment.
In NSW specifically, the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 (POEO Act) requires under section 66(6) of the POEO Act that holders of environmental protection licences make their pollution monitoring data publicly available.
The intention of this requirement is to improve the general public’s access to information about the environmental performance of licensed facilities. This is in addition to other information that the EPA includes on its public register.
In NSW, our Tooheys Brewery site at Lidcombe has specific requirements set out in its environment protection licence to monitor ground water and boiler stack gases on the site.

The NSW EPA requires all of our licensed sites in NSW (which includes Toohey’s, Leeton, Wetherill Park and Penrith) to make available a summary of their environmental contingency plans. Below are the plans for each of our licensed sites in NSW:
Australian Packaging Covenant
The Australian Packaging Covenant is a voluntary initiative by Government and Industry to reduce the impacts of packaging on the Environment from the disposal of used packaging, conservation of resources through better design and production processes and facilitation of the re-use and recycling of used packaging materials.
Lion has been participating in the Covenant since 2001, we have made significant improvements in our packaging over the past decade as a result.
Lion as a covenant signatory, submits a 5 year action plan outlining in detail what they propose to do to reduce the impact of their packaging both within their organisations and externally in the market place. KPIs need to be established in line with those proposed in the Covenant. Lion reports on progress against this action plan annually in line with signatory status requirements.
More detail on the packaging covenant and Lion’s commitments to sustainable packaging can be found using the flowing links:
