Decarbonizing the Mining Sector

Now in its 5th year, the Congress is firmly established as the global meeting place for senior mining, alternative energy, government and finance experts exploring cost-effective, reliable, and low-carbon energy for mines.

Carbon risks associated with GHG emissions regulations and increasing energy costs are material to the mining business. With carbon and renewables legislation in place in key mining markets and increased shareholder pressure to address climate change, mines are actively exploring alternative energy and storage as a means of cutting CO2 emissions and addressing power pricing and supply concerns.

Join the mining and energy experts addressing climate and energy risk for the resource sector at the Energy and Mines World Congress in Toronto this November.

The conference reached more mining companies from all over the world and the quality of the presentations were at its best.
