Helping miners manage the Safeguard Mechanism

Australia’s Safeguard Mechanism is aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions from large industrial facilities; however, coal mining will carry a large part of this burden. Michael Huggins, Director, shares his insight on the challenges facing coal miners in cutting emissions by 4.9% each year.  

He covers potential pathways involving energy transition roadmaps that use small tactical ideas to reduce emissions, pre-drainage of gas and incorporate carbon offset strategies. He believes, “coal miners have an even larger role to play in helping the east coast of Australia in energy transition. It is much more than reducing their direct emissions but also helping the east of Australia to develop more renewable energy.”
