DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM, TSX: NGT) published its 2022 Climate Report, prepared in alignment with the Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). The report outlines how Newmont understands and is addressing climate change — from managing physical and transition climate risks and enhancing resiliency within our business, to climate impacts and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions.
“Climate change is one of the greatest global challenges of our time and its impact on our earth and our business is undeniable,” said Newmont President and CEO Tom Palmer. “We believe that industries that create value — like mining — have a responsibility to drive bold actions and innovation to facilitate the transition to a low-carbon economy.”
Highlights from the 2022 Climate Report include:
- Advancing renewable energy projects at Boddington and Tanami that have the potential to reduce emissions by up to one million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent;
- Progressing the Vision Zero program, our strategic alliance with Caterpillar, to trial zero emissions battery electric haul systems for surface and underground operations;
- Surveying and engaging key suppliers and customers to incorporate emission reduction targets or decarbonization commitments into contracts; and
- Partnering with the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory on research related to carbon sequestration in mine tailings.
