Emission reduction measures undertaken/to be undertaken at a facility (only relevant for calculated baselines)
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.
Annually adjusted baseline (applies to production adjusted baselines only)
