BHP revs into Komatsu's GHG Alliance

BHP revs into Komatsu's GHG Alliance

(Posted on 09/08/21)

To accelerate its push to become a net-zero operator by 2050, BHP will become a founding member of Komatsu’s GHG Alliance, which aims to develop commercially viable zero-greenhouse gas emissions haul trucks.

As a founding partner of the Alliance, BHP plans to operate one of the first batches of zero-emission trucks upon commercial release.

BHP will provide engineering and technical resources to Komatsu to support the development phase as required. These activities will provide BHP with real-time access to technology in development, with Komatsu drawing upon BHP’s mining expertise to accelerate its path to market.

Additionally, BHP and Komatsu will collaborate through the BHP FutureFit Academy to develop the future facing skills in our teams to operate and maintain this pioneering equipment.

BHP’s Chief Commercial Officer, Vandita Pant, said: “Tackling climate change requires strong collaboration and collective effort across the supply chain. Reducing vehicle emissions is key to our climate strategy, and we are thrilled to join with Komatsu and our peers in the global mining sector on real, tangible action to help accelerate our transition to a low carbon future. Extending the FutureFit Academy partnership to equip our workforce to operate zero emissions technology is an exciting addition to our collaboration with Komatsu”

BHP’s Group Procurement Officer, James Agar, said: “We are excited by the opportunity to work with the Komatsu GHG Alliance to drive new technology and innovation that can benefit the mining industry globally. This collaboration is a great example of the partnership approach we are taking in our supply chain as we work towards BHP’s goal of net zero operational emissions by 2050.”

Komatsu Ltd.’s President Mining Business Division, Max Moriyama, said: “We are thrilled to welcome BHP to this exciting new customer alliance and ready to see how we can all work together towards a more sustainable future and rapid development of zero-emission equipment solutions.”
