We are also guided by a range of best-in-class policies and procedures, as well as self-regulatory industry codes and legislation, which cover many of our business operations.

Castlemaine Perkins Brewery
We are proud of the long histories our breweries have in the communities in which we operate, and the iconic status many have earned over the years. Our Castlemaine Perkins Brewery in Milton is a great example – in 2009 the Brewery was selected as one of three inaugural businesses to be inducted into the Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame, and parts of the Brewery are even heritage listed under State Government legislation.
With this status comes responsibility, and we are committed to maintaining systems and controls that meet or exceed regulatory compliance and codes of practice.
In February 2009, the Queensland Government introduced protective legislation xxxx for Castlemaine Perkins Brewery, due to the introduction of multi-storey inner-suburb residential developments. We have worked directly with the developers to ensure new tenants are fully aware of the local environment and our operations – providing everyone with a clear understanding of their rights, and the rights of existing tenants such as the Castlemaine Perkins Brewery.
We remain committed to abiding by all rules and regulations governing noise, traffic movements and emissions, and will continue to work constructively with the local community to resolve any issues that might arise.
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.
