Presenter: Dr Kristy Nell, Research Fellow, Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre


Understanding GHG emissions and its categorisation, the various carbon sources and sinks, as well as measurement techniques is crucial to enable the effective management and mitigation of these emissions. This webinar takes a deep dive into the landscape of sustainable practices and decarbonisation within the mining sector. It will highlight the knowledge required in terms of carbon accounting, and will explore relevant strategies for reducing carbon footprints in mining operations, a critical step towards 2050’s net-zero targets.

Key Highlights:

  • Understand emissions and the details around it.
  • Be familiar with the relevant national and international policies.
  • Learn about the principles of carbon accounting in mining and its role in measuring, reporting, and reducing emissions.
  • Discover methods being deployed in mines around the world to significantly lower carbon emissions.
