Fortescue Metals Group has announced a revised target of 2040 to achieve net-zero operational carbon emissions. The pure-play iron ore miner also aims to reduce its scope 1 and scope 2 emissions from existing operations by 26 per cent over the next decade. However, Fortescue has not set any emission reduction targets for its Iron Bridge magnetite project, advising that it will outline separate targets for the project when it becomes operational in mid-2022. Fortescue continues to resist setting scope 3 emission reduction targets.
