Mining in a low emissions economy

Western Australia’s mining and resources sector has a critical role to play in the transition to net zero emissions by 2050. The potential is enormous, as are the benefits.

But where are the opportunities? What should be prioritised? And how do we turn ambition into action?

These questions are addressed in this practical analysis, developed by the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) and the Minerals Research Institute of Western Australia (MRIWA), drawing on the expertise and insights of specialist consultants, ENGIE Impact.
