How Carbon is Shaping Energy for Mines

With insights from mining leaders at Fortescue Metals Group, Gold Fields, Teck Resources, and Avalon Advanced Materials, this week’s report looks at how carbon is driving new energy choices for the global mining sector.

Alongside power security and cutting energy costs, reducing the emissions intensity of mining operations has been elevated to a top strategic concern for mines. This is being driving by carbon pricing in key mining markets and increased shareholder pressure to reduce carbon risk.

“Externally, carbon is a key strategic concern globally and therefore it translates into a key driver for Fortescue to ensure that we play an appropriate role in efforts to reduce emissions,” reports Bethwyn Cowcher, Legal Manager for Energy and Power at Fortescue Metals Group.

With additional industry insights from Deloitte, Carbon War Room, Carbon Disclosure Project and Engeco, this report explores how the increased focus on carbon is leading mines to explore new energy options and innovations including renewables, electrification and digitization.
