Brazil Iron aim to be a global leader in the decarbonisation of the iron and steel industry
We intend to sustainably develop Bahia’s iron ore resources as Brazil’s new green iron and steel province, using 100% renewable energy and green hydrogen. We intend to operate with net-zero carbon emissions and to deliver net-positive outcomes for the environment and our communities.
We are committed to operating in a sustainable and responsible manner that benefits our stakeholders, our communities and the environment. We recognise the importance of preserving natural resources for future generations and strive to minimise our impact on the planet.
We understand the local impact that mining activities can have on the environment. We are committed to, not just mitigating those impacts, but also compensating to provide a net-positive environmental impact. This will be achieved through efficient water management, biodiversity action plans and net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. We intend to utilise our residual materials to progressively restore landscapes and then plant with native species to create habitats with high biodiversity value. These areas can then be preserved as healthy and sustainable nature reserves for future generations.
For the global environment, we intend to tackle climate change by revolutionising the iron and steel industry. The industry traditionally emits huge quantities in CO2 into the atmosphere (contributing 7% of global green house gas emissions). We intend to transform the industry by producing the metal that the world needs with net-zero carbon emissions, through the use of 100% renewable energy and green hydrogen. We will also produce very high specification direct reduction iron, which minimises our scope 3 emissions (i.e. meaning that we are improving the emissions of our downstream customers operations).
We are dedicated to contributing positively to our communities. Our social responsibility programs aim to promote the welfare of our employees and the local communities. We also support local hospitals, schools and businesses, providing training and development opportunities. Our operations will provide high paying skilled jobs to the region, which will have a positive impact on the lives of the people in our communities.
We are committed to transparency and accountability in our operations. We engage Brazilian and international independent specialists to audit and report on our sustainability efforts and engage with our stakeholders to ensure that our operations align with their expectations. We are committed to working with our stakeholders to minimise our impact on the environment and to support the communities in which we operate.
We comply with all relevant environmental and social regulations, and we seek to exceed these standards wherever possible. Our commitment to sustainability goes beyond compliance with regulations, and we continuously strive to improve our operations to minimise our impact on the environment and promote the well-being of our stakeholders.
At Brazil Iron, we are committed to operating in a sustainable manner and contributing to the betterment of the planet and the communities we work with. Working with our stakeholders, local communities and the state of Bahia, we can create a bright, positive and sustainable future.
Responsible water management is critical. We have put in place a comprehensive water monitoring program that involves regular testing and analysis of water resources, as well as industry leading management plans.
We have implemented a noise and emissions control plan, using state of the art technology to monitor and minimise impacts for local communities and the environment.
We have already planted over 10,000 trees to protect and enhance the environment. As part of our restoration and biodiversity improvement plans, we will plant over 250,000 trees.
As part of our environmental and biodiversity enhancement plans, we have established a nursery to grow seedlings of native vegetation. This program is already having a positive net impact on the biodiversity of our region.
