PD Hours
Join us online for the webinar series Net Zero: The mining sector’s decarbonisation journey. The is the second webinar of the series. We will discuss carbon emissions measurement and disclosure for the mining sector, presented by Megan Born and Joel Hextall from Energetics.

About this event

The science and climate risks identified by the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), requires immediate action to reducing global warming. AusIMM’s Net Zero webinar series aims to play a role in delivering professional development to resources sector professionals, to help build the capability to catalyse and accelerate the required climate action.

Expert speakers will provide participants an overview of:

  • Scope 1, 2 and 3 emission boundaries, GHG Protocol, NGERS etc
  • Emission factors
  • Setting a baseline inventory
  • Science based targets
  • TCFD, GRI, CDSB, IFRS/ISSB etc And flag that TNFD is coming.
  • Marginal abatement curves
  • Including TCFD recommendations in a company’s mainstream financial report or separately?
  • How vital that forward-looking capital allocation plans disclosed within the net zero transition plan remain aligned to the information provided within the financial statements.
