Our approach to climate change is integrated with our strategy and is designed to protect and unlock long-term value, build operational resilience, and enhance our competitiveness in a low-carbon world.
As a global mining and metals company, we have an important role to play in responding to the risks and opportunities of climate change: to produce the metals that support the transition to a low-carbon world; and to do so in a way that seeks to minimise our impact.
We support the objectives of the Paris Agreement and have a long-term goal(1) to achieve net zero operational greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050.
We have set a medium-term target(2) to halve our operational GHG emissions by 2035 from our FY21 baseline.
Recognising that we have a critical role to play in contributing to the decarbonisation of the value chain, in partnership with our customers and suppliers, we have set a goal(1) of net zero Scope 3 GHG emissions by 2050.
Our approach to climate change is focused on:
Our Board, together with its standing Committees, has oversight of our work on climate change as a strategic risk and governance issue. The Board oversees the Company on its approach to deliver its' decarbonisation commitments, recognising that it must be both ambitious – which is necessary to achieve our net zero goal – and realistic, recognising that there is no definitive ‘best pathway’ to net zero and some of the innovations we will need are not yet fully developed. Our CEO, together with our Lead Team, is accountable for execution of our approach to climate change.
