What is Environmental?
The Environmental category aims to highlight companies that are undertaking projects that reduce their impact on the natural environment or contribute to its general health. With the effects of climate change becoming ever more obvious, corporations have a responsibility to update and change their practices to prevent further damage being caused.
This category includes any projects that have led or will lead to a significant reduction in a company’s environmental impact and carbon footprint. This can include changes to materials and manufacturing, supply chain reviews; reduction in energy use or switches to renewables; recycling initiatives; and carbon offsetting. The category also includes projects that contribute to the environment such as tree planting schemes and river cleaning.
The mining industry is very carbon intensive and thus the importance of companies taking measures to reduce this impact cannot be overstated.
The challenge is an enormous one for an industry that ties up a lot of land and resources and relies on heavy duty machinery, the majority of which is run on fossil fuels.
What we have seen during the research period is the first steps towards making that change, with individual companies or groups committing to researching ways of making extraction and production more sustainable. The most common methods being electrification of vehicles and equipment, greater use of renewable energy and exploration of alternative fuels such as hydrogen.
In addition, several companies have made commitments to ensure their operations are net zero by set target dates.
The companies in this category have been exploring ways to make their operations more sustainable, whether it be through greater use of electric vehicles, machinery and other alternative fuels, or committing to net zero carbon targets.
