  • The Company advanced key greenhouse gas ("GHG") emission reduction initiatives, including Candelaria signing a new power purchase agreement ("PPA") where 80% of its electricity supply will come from renewable sources.
  • Scope 2 emissions reductions were further advanced by Caserones' and Zinkgruvan's investments in a 100%-renewable electricity supply, supported by an I-REC certificate and a Guarantee of Origin.
