Iluka uses an event management system to record environmental incidents, which are then classified according to the severity of the potential impact to the environment. Level 1 incidents have no or minimal impact and Level 5 incidents have the greatest potential cumulative impact over time.

The number of Level 3 and above environmental incidents for the Group decreased from 27 in 2017 to 20 in 2018. This reduction is attributable to improved management measures implemented at the Sierra Rutile operations.

The overall number of incidents reported increased from 953 in 2017 to 1,641 in 2018 and is attributable to an increase in reporting environmental hazards at Sierra Rutile and construction commencing at the Cataby mine.
