BHP and EGP: becoming sustainable and ensuring growth

BHP and EGP: becoming sustainable and ensuring growth

One of the world’s leading mining companies is aiming to achieve net zero operational emissions by 2050 and has intermediary targets for 2030. BHP has chosen Enel Green Power as an important partner to help reduce its environmental impact. The company is set to purchase energy from the Flat Rocks wind farm in Western Australia.

Partnership

The responsibility to play a leading role in decarbonization

Decarbonizing the planet and replacing fossil fuels in the coming years will require a vast quantity of resources for the construction of renewable energy plants and electric vehicles. BHP supplies high quality nickel to world markets for use in electric vehicle batteries and other growing technologies that will support global decarbonization.

BHP has chosen Enel Green Power as a partner to help minimize its own environmental impact and achieve net zero operational emissions by 2050.

In April 2022, BHP signed an agreement to purchase renewable energy amounting to 100% of the production of the Flat Rocks wind farm in Western Australia, including energy and LGCs (Large Scale Generation Certificates), providing around 315 GWh per year of sustainable electricity over 12 years.

The energy supplied through this Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) will be generated by Flat Rocks Stage One, which will enter into operation in 2024. The wind farm, which is currently in the design phase prior to construction, will be composed of 18 4.2MW Vesta V150 wind turbines in addition to the connected electricity infrastructure.

Products for a cleaner future

BHP, one of the world’s leading mining companies, is committed to supplying the resources that the world needs for growth and decarbonization, like copper for renewable energy and nickel for electric vehicles, potash and steel: a mix of resources for today and tomorrow.

BHP’s goal for 2050 is to achieve net zero in terms of its own operational emissions (Scope 1 and 2) and it has also set targets for 2030 to reduce its Scope 3 emissions by working with its partners in the steel and shipping industries, through significant climate impact investments in sectors like low-carbon steel production and low emission technologies.
