The economy on carbon diet

 A global challenge

Fossil fuels have improved the standard of living - at the same time their emissions have led to global warming. To at least mitigate the consequences for the planet, energy systems must be decarbonized by the middle of this century.

Opportunity for mining

Low-emission energy and transport systems are more mineral-intensive than their fossil fuel counterparts. This represents a great opportunity for the mining sector: Those companies that reduce their emissions by using renewable energies - such as fleets powered by electricity or hydrogen or integrating recycling into the value chains - are best placed to sell low-carbon premium minerals.
