Diversified miner South32 has posted a 2019-20 interim net profit of $US99m, which is 84 per cent lower than previously. The group’s underlying earnings fell 80 per cent to $US131m and revenue was down 16 per cent due to lower prices for its key commodities. CEO Graham Kerr says South32’s focus is on Scope 1 carbon emissions at present, but he argues that all companies will eventually need to address their Scope 3 emissions. He adds that governments must clarify how planning approvals will take Scope 3 emissions into account.
