Supporting a Low Carbon Future

Newfoundland and Labrador’s mining sector plays a pivotal role in advancing a low-carbon future, supplying essential materials for battery production and renewable technologies like solar panels. This places our industry at the forefront of the global shift towards sustainability.


Conscious of its ecological footprint, the mining industry has been steadfast in minimizing its environmental impact. A Deloitte study highlighted a commendable reduction in mines’ net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by approximately 8% annually between 2005 and 2015, as per company disclosures. This reduction rate is set to rise in the coming years, with the industry aiming for zero net GHG emissions.
