Biodiversity: EN11 - EN15

  • EN11 Location and size of land owned, leased, managed in, or adjacent to, protected areas and areas of high biodiversity value outside protected areas.

    Barloworld operations do not directly affect any terrestrial fresh water or marine environments. Since sites are primarily in industrialised and urbanised areas, they do not impact on protected areas or areas with high biodiversity value.

    However, four vehicle maintenance and repair facilities operate in the Kruger National Park in South Africa. These sites occupy an area of 13 091m2.

    These operations have not significantly affected these areas.

    The group has therefore not needed to address biodiversity protection or rehabilitation matters during the year, nor have its activities affected threatened species or their habitat. We will continuously consider these aspects in constructing or renovating facilities in future.
  • EN12 Description of significant impacts of activities, products, and services on biodiversity in protected areas and areas of high biodiversity value outside protected areas.


    There are no significant impacts on areas of high biodiversity value.
  • EN13 Habitats protected or restored.

    Barloworld does not impact habitats in any way so no restoration activities are necessary.


  • EN14 Strategies, current actions, and future plans for managing impacts on biodiversity.

    The group has not needed to address any biodiversity protection or rehabilitation matters during the year, nor have its activities impacted on threatened species or their habitat. The group will continuously take these aspects into account in constructing or renovating any facilities in future. Currently the group does not focus on specific biodiversity impacts of its activities nor is this anticipated to be a material matter into the future, given the locations of its operations.

    Despite the insignificant direct impact our operations have on biodiversity, we remain mindful that the use of some of our products may have an indirect impact on biodiversity through climate change.

    Avis Rent a Car SA purchased sufficient carbon credits to offset its internal fuel and energy usage carbon emissions, as in the prior year.

    The group strives to reduce and minimise environmental impact of its operations, products and solutions through a range of internal and external initiatives (EN7,EN26 and EN30) .


  • EN15 Number of IUCN Red List species and national conservation list species with habitats in areas affected by operations, by level of extinction risk.

    No Red List species are affected by any of the group's operations.
