Metals and minerals are indispensable in our pursuit of a greener world. At LKAB, we aim to be one of the most resource and environmentally efficient mining and mineral companies in the world. Recognising our impact on people, the environment, and climate, we’re dedicated to minimising it on a local, regional, and global scale. In the long term, our transformation can contribute to reducing global carbon dioxide emissions by 40-50 million tonnes annually. Here and now, we’re working hard to reduce emissions from our current operations.
Environmental impact and resource utilisation
Our commitment to minimising environmental impact and maximising resource efficiency is at the core of our operations. By 2030, we aim to slash energy consumption by ten percent per finished tonne of product, paralleled by a 25 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions from our operations. To achieve this, we’re gradually phasing out fossil fuels, replacing them with renewable energy sources like wind, water, and nuclear power.
