Business challenge

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


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.

Business impact


improvement in Net Present Value (NPV)


reduction in total emissions (1.0-1.6M tCO2e reduction pa)


annually in identified operational savings


capital requirement

  • 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
