The Mining Industry: How to fuel the green energy supply chain sustainably

The green transition depends on essential mined materials, however, mining is a linear, extractive industry that consumes a great deal of energy and pollutes local ecosystems. ‘Greening’ production is essential to reducing heavy industry’s environmental impact especially as we accelerate the transition towards a more climate-friendly economy.

Co-locating appropriate renewable energy and water treatment assets on new and existing sites can achieve waste reduction, circular production and sustainable exploration.
