As a Minnesota company, Twin Metals is dedicated to advancing a modern mining project that brings economic prosperity to our region while protecting our environment, because we live and work here. This is our home. Sustainability is our commitment.
While the people advancing this project are Minnesotans who care deeply about protecting our state’s natural resources, we’re fortunate to have the backing of Antofagasta, our parent company and one of the top ten copper producers globally. Their purpose-driven commitment to sustainability, social responsibility, and environmental protection is part of Twin Metals’ DNA.
Sustainability is not just a word to us at Twin Metals and Antofagasta. We have goals to back it up.
Recently, Antofagasta announced new greenhouse gas reduction targets as part of its Climate Change Strategy and its wider commitment to operate sustainably as a leading copper producer. They have committed to:
- Reduce direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions by 30%, or by 730,000 tons of CO2, by 2025.
- Achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
- Transition all mining operations to use 100% renewable energy by 2022.
- Additionally, they have also begun the process of certifying copper production at two of their operations with the Copper Mark standard, an internationally validated assurance framework demonstrating that copper is produced under the highest standards for sustainability.
With Antofagasta’s guidance as a global mining leader, and Twin Metals’ local, Minnesota-based expertise, we are working to advance a world-class mine that will serve as a model for the industry and a source of pride for Minnesotans.
We look forward to continuing to share with you the innovative progress happening at both Twin Metals and Antofagasta in the coming years. In the meantime, you can learn more about Antofagasta’s commitment to sustainable mining on a new page we just launched on our website: www.twin-metals.com/antofagasta.
