Sustainability at Iluka means integrating economic, environmental and social considerations into business practice, and ensuring safe and responsible conduct underpins everything the company does.

Iluka’s approach to sustainability starts with its Game Plan. The Game Plan is the foundation of the business and defines and influences the company’s culture. It is intended to ensure that Iluka fulfils its commitments with key stakeholders and operates in an ethical and responsible manner.

Iluka’s objective is to create and deliver value for shareholders. The company’s values are centred on Commitment, Integrity and Responsibility. Being a sustainable corporate citizen enables the company to fulfil its objective.

In practice, this means proactive consideration for all environmental, social and economic implications prior to, throughout and following the closure of operations.

Iluka governs its sustainability approach through a series of polices and management systems that span across six key elements.

Economic responsibility  Iluka is committed to sustainable economic outcomes allowing us to share economic benefits with the communities in which we operate, whilst creating and delivering value to shareholders. 
Governance Iluka is committed to conducting its business in accordance with the highest standards of corporate governance.
People Iluka seeks to attract and retain the best people while building and maintaining a diverse, inclusive and high-achieving workforce.
Health and safety Iluka is committed to achieving a fatality free workplace, eliminating injuries and protecting the health and wellbeing of its people.
Social performance Iluka respects human rights, engages meaningfully with stakeholders and seeks to make a positive difference to the social and economic development of the areas in which it operates.
Environment Iluka seeks to manage its impact on the environment, use resources efficiently and leave positive rehabilitation and closure outcomes.


In 2015 Iluka committed to progressively aligning its sustainability practices with the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) Framework for Sustainable Development. Further information on Iluka’s sustainability approach, material issues, targets and performance​ is available in the 2017 sustainability report.
