Evolution mining evolving towards zero emissions
Evolution has several gold mining interests in Queensland including Mount Carlton South of Ayr, Mount Rawdon near Bundaberg and Ernest Henry north of Cloncurry.
The program includes reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent by 2030 and achieving new zero greenhouse emissions by 2050.
This would be met by partnerships with industry, government and supply chains to maximise use of low-emission solutions as well as developing technology roadmaps, integrating carbon reduction plans and improved transparency.
To ensure long term value is delivered to stakeholders, Evolution was building climate related risk resilience into the operational environment and communities through sound risk management practices, said Evolution’s Executive Chairman, Jake Klein.
“We have always put environmental and social concerns at the forefront of our operations. Now we’re publicly committing to bolder, more tangible action as we align our business with the transition to net zero.”
“The Company is actively managing these risks and opportunities, improving energy efficiency, responsibly managing water use, and preparing and managing for extreme weather and health events.,” Mr Klein said.
“This focus is aligned with Evolution’s ambition to reduce our environmental footprint and emissions profile and deliver against our commitment to strive for sustainable outcomes for all stakeholders throughout the life of the company.
“Along this journey to net zero, Evolution will provide reporting transparency in alignment with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and other reporting frameworks.”
