Climate Change

The Climate Change Protocol is designed to  support mining companies in managing their climate-related risks and opportunities, including associated mitigation and adaptation strategies, target-setting, and reporting.

The protocol supports mining companies in responding to emerging investor expectations around climate-related disclosures, including the  Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures. At higher levels of performance, companies will be required to make commitments,  supported by short- and long-term targets and actions, to climate action consistent with the ambitions of the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees, as well as commitments corresponding with ambitions to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
