Achieving Net Zero in Mining & Metals Industries: BV'S White Paper available

Jul. 10 2023

Bureau Veritas’s white paper, entitled “Achieving net zero - advancing decarbonization solutions for mining & metal industries” is available for download. It outlines how BV supports the mining and metals industry in implementing a project-specific approach to answer the growing call for net zero.

Climate change is one of the main challenges of our era, with regulators, businesses and society increasingly calling for a swift energy transition. To achieve this, carbon-intense industries are adopting ambitious net zero targets that will steer them toward reduced emissions and greener operations.

Major mining and metal refining companies worldwide have come to understand the key role they must play in the energy transition, with many pledging to achieve net zero by 2050. Companies at both national and international levels are looking to limit their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, recognizing that reaching net zero will require serious, sustained, long-term effort.

While there are many routes to reducing direct and indirect emissions from the mining and metals sector, each energy provider will need a company-specific approach.

In this white paper, you will learn how Bureau Veritas helps organizations assess their carbon footprint, identify emissions hotspots, and develop a net zero roadmap that defines clear actions for reducing emissions. Learn how we help our clients implement and evaluate improvement programs and verify their information to enable them to communicate transparently about their progress toward net zero.
