BHP has committed to a target of 2050 to reduce its scope 3 emissions to net zero. However, while this target will apply to the resources group’s direct suppliers and shippers, it will exclude the steelmakers that buy its iron ore. BHP contends that there are still a number of challenges for steel-makers in reducing their carbon footprint, and it intends to continue to partner with them to accelerate the transition to carbon neutral steel-making. The steel industry is estimated to have generated about 75 per cent of BHP’s total scope 3 emissions of 402 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2020-21.
