ENGIE helps mining supplier cut emissions by 100,000 tonnes

Weir Minerals Australia has sealed an agreement with Engie Australia & New Zealand to source renewable energy for its operations in New South Wales and Queensland

Mining supplier Weir Minerals Australia has sealed an agreement with ENGIE Australia & New Zealand to source renewable energy for its operations in New South Wales and Queensland.

The five-year power purchase agreement could represent a reduction of more than 100,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions.

Weir has committed to a 50% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and achieving zero for its global operations by 2050.

Jazib Farid, Weir Minerals Australia Environmental Engineer, said: “Weir’s clear focus on making mining more sustainable and efficient includes leading by example and reducing the footprint of our own operations.”

ENGIE ANZ Executive General Manager of Energy Management, Mr Andrew Hyland, commented: “For the Australian mining sector specifically, renewable PPAs offer price and stability benefits which can underpin and enable investments and the greening of supply chains.”
