Newmont Commits to Net Zero GHG Emissions by 2050
“At Newmont, we hold ourselves to high standards — from the way in which we govern our business, to how we manage relationships with our stakeholders, to our environmental stewardship and safety practices,” President and CEO Tom Palmer said. “We fundamentally understand the human contribution to climate change and understand we reap what we sow.
“It is our responsibility to take care of the resources provided to us. We take these climate change commitments seriously and make them because our relationship with the planet is absolute. We want a world that is not just sustainable, but thriving for generations to come.” Using science-based criteria, Newmont has set climate targets for 2021- 2030 for its operating sites, including a renewable energy target. The science-based criteria align with Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) criteria and assists Newmont in developing specific emissions reduction pathways and meeting the Paris agreement objective of being well below 2°C global temperature change.
