2 Where we began Where we are now started in 1993 with a belief that we needed to be smarter about how we use the earth s limited resources and how we can no longer just discard materials because they had been used before. We felt that rather than bury, hide or dispose of waste materials, we needed to clean them up and use them again. Today is widely regarded as the leading Australian environmental services company. The company currently has over 400 staff, operates in 19 locations, in 5 Australian states and 3 countries. It has also established a series of partnerships and consultancy services that have seen it expand into a range of new areas and initiatives. Last year we processed over 2 million tonnes of materials. We did not accept that the price of economic growth was environmental damage or that we had limitless supplies of energy. recycles in excess of 95% of all incoming materials. Last year we processed over 2 million tonnes of materials. We had to become smarter about using what we have and looking for viable alternatives. The Issue Around 40% of all of the world s waste is from construction and demolition Twice as much concrete is used in construction around the world as all other building materials (wood, steel, plastic and aluminum) combined. And it is growing at an alarming rate Poorly managed waste has a significant impact on our health, local and global environment and the economy Through the constant investment in research and the application of new technologies we are improving the extraction and performance of these materials and the range of environmental services we provide, both in Australian and Asian markets.

3 What we do What started as a mobile crushing business for concrete and construction materials, has quickly grown into a diverse business offering a wide range of services designed to reduce, recycle and reuse a broad range of materials and outputs. We pride ourselves on being flexible and adaptable, offering our clients solutions, whatever challenges they face. From household through to highly contaminated industrial wastes, we can take, treat or advise on just about anything. In addition, our logistics and offshore capabilities enable us to manage waste problems just about anywhere. No challenge is too great or too small. Solutions Alternative Fuels Transport & Logistics Solutions Construction & Demolition Materials Recycling Asphalt Recycling Concrete Recycling Bulk & Engineered Fill Supply Fixed & Mobile Pre-mixed Concrete Batching Commercial & Industrial Materials Recycling End of Life Landfill Carbon Abatement Sales & Auditing Aggregate, Screenings & Asphalt Based Product Supply Disposal, Treatment & Management of Waste Soils Mine and Quarry Rehabilitation Management of Project Specific Waste Renewable Energy Tyre and Conveyor Belt Recycling

4 Group Structure Our commitment to our beliefs has seen us expand, acquire and develop new businesses, create partnerships and venture into new markets we never imagined in We have developed successful long term partnerships with multi-national groups such as SUEZ of France (via SITA Alternative Fuels Recycling Waste Management Development Australia), global cement leader Lafarge and in Australia with Adelaide Brighton Ltd. also provides project consultancy and technical expertise to deliver turnkey project solutions. Today our business is composed of four main divisions as shown on the right: SITA- Asia C&D Recycling Concrete Batching Tyrecycle Landfill Soil Carbon Land Power Generation A snapshot 400+ Staff 19 Locations Operating in 5 States and 3 Countries Internationally over 100,000 tonnes of material processed annually Locally 2 million tonnes of material processed annually

5 Our markets Construction We provide a wide range of recycled products, including pavement and asphalt type materials, aggregates, concrete and sand, and services to major civil engineering projects and both residential and commercial construction. No project is too big or too small such as: major, arterial and minor road construction retail centres warehouse and showroom construction housing developments and apartment construction Transport The Group has the capacity to supply recycled materials to your project or to collect your unwanted materials for recycling. Transporting these products in a timely and effective manner is important to us whether it is in: truck and trailer semi walk in floor Demolition The cornerstone of the business is the processing of Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste materials, consisting of asphalt, concrete, bricks and rubble to manufacture a range of recycled aggregates and recycled asphalt products. Recycling C&D material provides a diversion of waste from landfills including: the reuse of steel from concrete conservation of resources through extending the life of quarries full lifecycle of material/s from demolition through to re-supply to site for construction carbon benefits Mining The flexibility and adaptability of the Group is central to providing turnkey project solutions for the mining industry. Such solutions include: mobile concrete batching waste management site rehabilitation recycling conveyor belts and tyres Government Waste We have the capability to handle almost all waste streams from varied sources. Based on the philosophy of reduce, reuse and recycle, the Group offers clients a variety of recycling solutions as well as end of life options. We can deliver treatment and management of even the most obscure materials as required by our clients targets including: asbestos soil C&D C&I organic metal tyres Major Infrastructure Projects has a history of servicing major infrastructure developments as a major project partner. We work closely with our clients to create tailored environmental solutions specific to the project. Examples include: major hospitals medical research centres sports stadiums aquatic centres Working with Federal, State and Local Governments, the Group offers clients sustainable solutions to support environmental improvement targets on major projects and other capital works. To lead environmental policy development, it is critical that Government is strategically aligned with progressive, market-leading organisations. Government project examples include: road construction schools and emergency services rail infrastructure Industrial & Manufacturing We work closely with clients to audit their waste streams to recapture embodied energy in materials as part of a zero waste solution. Assisting them with the development of comprehensive environmental management plans offers our clients a competitive edge. We have provided services to this sector for projects as diverse as: fuel supplies smelters precast and steel manufacture Energy The Group believes alternative sources of energy to fossil fuels are integral to maintaining a sustainable environment. Our aim is to construct additional alternative fuel plants and purpose built power generation plants using renewable energy biomass and rubber based fuel sources across Asia and Australia to: conserve natural resources reduce landfill reduce greenhouse gas emissions Defence We have provided materials in the development of major Defence facilities, ranging from: infrastructure construction residential housing Alternative Fuels Development Recycling Waste Management Water Understanding that water is another precious natural resource, has worked collaboratively in the development of projects such as: port expansion and reclamation works desalination projects development of sustainable wetlands for waste water treatment

6 The future In 1993 we never imagined that our business would be as large and diverse as it is today. No doubt, in 10 years time we will look back and realise that the journey had only just begun. The demand to reduce, recycle and reuse materials will inevitably grow as we find new ways to solve environmental problems, improve the quality and extraction of waste materials, make better use of what we have and continue to reshape commercial and community attitudes to the disposal of waste. has the vision, experience and resources to capitalise on these opportunities and, ultimately, to leave the world in a better place than we found it. Our Beliefs We believe we need to be a lot smarter about how we use the earth s limited resources. We believe we can no longer just discard things because we have used them before. We need to find new ways to recycle and reuse everything. We can no longer bury, hide or dispose of waste materials that are polluted or toxic. We need to clean them up and use them again. We can no longer accept that the price of growth is environmental damage. We need to find ways to minimise the impact of our activities. We can no longer accept that we have limitless supplies of energy. We have to be smarter about using what we have and looking for viable alternatives. We believe that we have an obligation to leave the planet in a better state than we found it. We will not rest until we do. We are.
