Planet Positive offering
There is an enormous demand for environmental efficiency within our customer’s industries. The mining industry especially, as it is highly energy and water intensive. We provide our customers with durable, energy-efficient equipment and services that last for a long life-cycle.
It is important for equipment and services suppliers like us to support our customers, and to help them achieve the rapid production increase of battery metals supporting electrification. Industries such as aggregates, minerals processing and metals refining have significant carbon footprints themselves, since rock comminution and processing is very energy intensive and consume around 5% of the world’s power. To reach net zero - which is the goal for most leading mining companies - will require a shift towards renewables-based electricity and an increase in energy efficiency. For this, significant technology innovation is needed in order to make equipment more energy and water efficient and fully capable of operating effectively using renewable power.
Central to our sustainability efforts is our Planet Positive offering. These are products that have considerably more energy or water efficiency than the market standard, therefore helping our customers cut their CO2 emissions and/or achieve their other sustainability priorities such as reducing pollution. Planet Positive Services can also improve customers’ processes to achieve similar benefits. To qualify as Planet Positive means ensuring that designated products and services can make a meaningful contribution to our customers’ efforts towards reaching their own climate and other environmental targets. Planet Positive qualification criteria is consistent with our customers reaching their own publicly stated climate change goal and other environmental targets, e.g. for reducing their carbon footprint.
