Emission reduction measures undertaken/to be undertaken at a facility (if applicable)

BHP has a focus on ongoing emissions reduction and sets voluntary, business wide GHG emissions reduction targets. Mining Area C is included in this process and is required to review its operations and identify costeffective emissions reduction projects.

Some examples of projects that have reduced covered (scope 1) emissions from Mining Area C include:

  • Fleet Standardisation: Replacement strategy of haul truck fleet has led to increased productivity through the operation of more efficient truck models reducing the GHG emissions intensity of iron ore hauling.
  • Clean Fuels: Improved fuel cleanliness through removal of contaminants and water in BHP Billiton’s fuel supply chain has improved diesel use efficiency and led to reduced emissions from diesel consuming equipment.
  • Off-Highway Truck Emission Standards: Adoption of fuel optimised engine software for haul trucks to lower diesel consumption rates.
