What is responsible sourcing of metals, and why is it important?
Responsible sourcing ensures that metals are extracted ethically and sustainably, without causing unnecessary harm to the environment or local communities. By ensuring the upstream raw materials are sourced sustainably, miners and mineral processors can work with the downstream manufacturing markets to achieve society-wide net environmental goals.
How can manufacturers promote sustainability in the mining and metals industry?
Through methods such as adopting responsible sourcing practices, promoting recycling and circular economy, and supporting technological innovations. Life cycle assessment can help manufacturers to assess and optimise their supply chains in a quantitative way to ensure that every step is conducted as sustainably as possible.
How can mining be done in an environmentally and socially responsible way?
Through practices such as engaging with local communities, reducing waste generation, remediating land, and using eco-friendly technologies like renewable energy sources. Life cycle assessment can help mining operations identify current shortcomings and aid with focussing efforts on improving sustainability.
Is mining causing climate change?
Mining is currently responsible for 4 to 7 percent of global greenhouse-gas emissions. However, materials obtained from mining are essential to the technologies that we need for a decarbonised future.
How will metals help us to achieve a decarbonised future?
Metals enable various essential technologies and applications for renewable energy, energy storage, sustainable transportation, and energy efficiency. For example, aluminium is used in the frames of solar panels and in the construction of lightweight wind turbine blades.
