    Beliefs

    We believe that climate change is an urgent, existential threat to humanity.

    We believe that human ingenuity and the application of science can solve climate change.

    We believe that reducing emissions isn’t enough. We’ll also need to remove carbon from the atmosphere.

    We believe that mining is an essential provider of the resources needed for the energy transition.

    We believe that everyone needs to offer the skills and knowledge they have to fight climate change.

    We believe that no one person or company can solve the climate crisis alone.
