This report reviews the Net Zero commitments and climate related claims of the major players in Australia’s mining industry which is comprised of three key sectors: oil and gas, coal and minerals.

By assessing their Net Zero commitments, its aim is to drive better understanding of climate claims and unpack some common claims to give consumers an informed choice as to the climate related impacts of the products they choose and the companies they invest in.

Non-state actors— industry, financial institutions, cities and regions —play a critical role in getting the world to Net Zero no later than 2050. They will either help scale the ambition and action we need to ensure a sustainable planet or else they strongly increase the likelihood of failure. The planet cannot afford delays, excuses, or more greenwashing.”
