Our vision of the future of mining
The future of mining is net zero, circular and regenerative – supporting the transition to a sustainable world.
The net zero mine of the future will be achieved through the electrification of equipment and the use of fossil-free energy. The resource-efficient mine will be highly productive and minimize waste – and, once mined, metals and minerals will enter a closed loop system, facilitated by new circular business models. The regenerative mine will bring mining underground wherever possible and create a net positive impact on biodiversity. It will reduce the use of water to a minimum.
It will be connected, providing real-time data and intelligence to enable optimization. And it will provide a safe working environment for a highly skilled workforce in thriving communities. We believe this future is necessary to ensure access to resources that enable the transition to a low-carbon and sustainable world.
We are taking steps to help create this mine of the future in collaboration with our customers, developing forward-thinking solutions with a focus on automation, electrification and digitalization. We are providing autonomous and connected solutions, often operated remotely. We design equipment which is built to last and are working to increase circularity through options to refurbish, remanufacture or recycle at end-of-life.
Through innovation and customer partnerships, we aim to optimize mining from planning to operation to restoration.
