Carbon Savings

The transition to a green metals and mining sector in WA has the potential to deliver very significant carbon abatement. It is estimated that up to 25% of total carbon emissions from all Western Australians sources can be reduced and avoided through powering WA’s existing mining and minerals industries with renewable energy.

With the opportunity for significant growth in the size and scale of the industry and the export of green metal and hydrogen products, far greater global carbon savings could be delivered. This would allow Western Australia to transition from a major driver of global pollution through fossil fuel exports, to a major driver of global emissions savings and decarbonisation.
