Net Zero Roadmap for Copper and Nickel Value Chains
Jan 30, 2023
The Net Zero Roadmap for Copper and Nickel Value Chains is a net zero transition guide that sets out a science-based decarbonization strategy for copper and nickel mining value chain actors. It highlights how mining sector actors can lower their emissions footprints, including scopes 1 and 2, and a subset of scope 3. It shows how to take advantage of the growth in demand coming from end users such as EVs, solar, wind, and storage. And it demonstrates how a net zero strategy offers opportunities to improve broader ESG impacts and performance, access sustainable finance, and contribute to a just energy transition.
The Net Zero Roadmap was developed in consultation with a wide range of mining industry stakeholders, including leading mining companies such as Anglo American, Rio Tinto, BHP, and Vale; investors; OEMs; EV transport companies; and battery manufacturers, along with representatives from civil society, government, and academia.
