OUR POSITION ON CLIMATE CHANGE
We recognise our responsibility to support global efforts to achieve the climate change goals to reduce GHG emissions outlined in international guidance, including the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (“UNFCCC”) and the Paris Agreement.
We are committed to reduce our contribution to climate change, while also building operational resilience in the face of global warming. We recognise that this challenge requires transformational changes in how we extract mineral resources and integrate climate-related impacts and risk into our business strategy and financial planning.
In line with the recommendations of the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (“TCFD”), we are committed to disclosing actual and potential climate related risks and opportunities for our business strategy and financial planning, where such information is material, and performance against our targets. Having adopted climate-related metrics since 2016, we are continuing to widen the scope and accuracy of our reporting.
An index to our TCFD disclosures is presented in the Appendix of our Sustainability Report
Our climate action model comprises of four areas of focus:
- Reducing our carbon footprint (Scope 1 and 2)
- Collaboration with our supply chain (Scope 3)
- Operational resilience to climate change
