Air Quality Management

The bulk of our emissions to air are generated by heavy mobile equipment used for mining, product transport, primary crushing and onsite power generation.

We strive to be as efficient as possible in our combustion of fuel to manage costs and preserve a healthy working environment for our workers (particularly those working underground). We consider environmental and health implications in our supply contracts for equipment, electricity and fuel via our procurement processes.

We continuously improve our management of the nuisance impacts from dust generated by our activities. This includes watering heavy haul roads to keep dust to a minimum for surrounding communities and supporting the Government in the progressive sealing of roads (e.g. Las Bambas).

We report our emissions in accordance with the Australian Government’s National Pollutant Inventory emission estimation techniques and our materiality-based sustainability reporting processes.
