REHABILITATION AND ALIEN CLEARING


In line with the Record of Decision (RoD) for the construction and operation of the airport, which included an obligation to create a delineated conservation area within the Dube TradePort precinct, the organisation plays an ongoing rehabilitation and restoration role as a means of mitigating against the loss of habitat and species incurred during the initial construction phase of the precinct. In this regard, some 37.4ha were rehabilitated during the 2019/20 financial year alone, ensuring Dube TradePort Corporation's 91.59% environmental compliance with its environmental obligations.
