The decarbonising of operations across a company’s value chain – once seen as a nice-to-have reporting metric – is today, a corporate responsibility expectation and an industry-level credibility test.
More importantly, going forward, the ability to successfully decarbonise mining and metals businesses will become central to maintaining institutional investor commitment in an age where sustainability concerns determine global capital allocation.
Over the past few years, there have been a number of interesting green energy projects emerging from major mining companies. These include Bushveld Energy’s 1MW solar generation and storage project providing power at a lower price than South Africa’s national grid.
Bushveld Minerals Limited (LON:BMN), together with its subsidiaries, engages in the exploration and development of mineral projects in South Africa. It operates through three segments: Vanadium and Iron Ore, Coal Exploration, and Vanadium Mining and Production.
