60% reduction potential of carbon emissions for a major global miner, up to $590m improvement in NPV

Business challenge

Our client needed to develop an energy transition roadmap integrating technological solutions, economics and governance.

Context

A major single commodity global mining company had committed to a 30% emission reduction target by 2030 and carbon-neutrality by 2050.

They needed to define a plan to achieve this ambition and integrate emissions into their internal processes.

Solution

Top Line Solution

Align on 2030 ‘business as usual’ emissions, and develop an emission forecast model to 2030 and 2050

Identify opportunities to replace the fleet with lower emission technologies

Build idea repository of energy efficiency ideas and marginal abatement curves

Assess current business processes and provide recommendations to augment governance for emission management

Key Takeaway

Most client roadmaps only look at unabated and abated emission forecasts

Our roadmap considered critical but often overlooked, aspects such as the economics of emission reduction and the governance systems required to succeed

This resulted in a practical plan with a management operating cycle that would deliver on the ambition
