OUR COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT
Environment and climate
We aim to reduce the environmental impact of our activities and to use natural resources efficiently and responsibly. We invest in renewable energy and support the development of low-carbon technologies and fuels.
Scope 1 and 2 emissions
Our goal is to significantly reduce our operational greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1 and Scope 2), with the aim of cutting emissions by over 50% by 2032 compared to FY2020. We plan to achieve this by taking several actions, including closing or converting carbon-intensive assets, purchasing renewable electricity, implementing energy-efficient measures at our operations, and incorporating low-carbon vessels into our shipping fleet.
Scope 3 emissions
Scope 3 emissions refer to indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that occur as a result of our business activities but are outside of our direct control. These emissions are associated with the entire value chain including the extraction, production, processing and transportation of the products we purchase and supply to customers. We also calculate the ‘downstream’ scope 3 emissions associated with the commodities we produce from sites that we own or operate. Our target is to reduce the upstream scope 3 emissions associated with the non-ferrous metals we supply to customers by 10% by 2030, compared to 2020.
