Benchmarking of environmental performance to demonstrate the achievement of best practice environmental management is a component of a new form of licensing of industrial discharges in Western Australia. The paper describes the approaches to benchmarking for the critical environmental issues for an alumina refinery and wastewater treatment plant. It also describes the lessons learnt from the benchmarking process on appropriate methods, the benefits and difficulties in the benchmarking process, and changes that would assist benchmarking for best practice environmental management.
