Circular Economy

The steel industry is responsible for around 8% of global GHG emissions, with the potential of 74% of energy processes being saved through recycling. Aluminum produces around 2% of global GHG emissions, while using recycled aluminum saves about 95% of energy compared to processing primary materials.

A Circular Economy is about re-thinking and re-designing the way we produce, consume and dispose, playing an integral role toward net-zero.

The rapid transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy has increased the demand for mining and metals. At the same time, the mining industry is under growing pressure to operate sustainably and reduce their carbon footprint.

The rising popularity of ESG investing and increased demand for minerals puts the mining and metals industry in a unique position to be leaders in the renewable energy transition. Green innovations drive growth, and with this shift to low-carbon technologies, demand for recycled material will also increase.

Creating circular economic systems is key in sustaining the demand of critical minerals while keeping materials at their highest value.
