ENGIE Impact recently announced the completion of its Zero Carbon Roadmap for Vale New Caledonia to reach its zero carbon targets and stay ahead of regional competition during its sustainability transformation.
Vale New Caledonia produces nickel predominantly intended for the battery industry. With increasing competition in the APAC region, Vale New Caledonia is doubling down on its sustainability efforts to make it a key point of differentiation. Vale New Caledonia has recognised that to ensure an end-to-end carbon free product, the whole value chain of electric vehicles must be decarbonised.
ENGIE is working to identify additional decarbonisation levers and to address Vale New Caledonia’s carbon dioxide emissions. Sustainability consulting arm of ENGIE, ENGIE Impact, is providing a holistic overview of energy systems and decarbonisation roadmaps, as well as the local knowledge and presence.
“Vale New Caledonia is committed to sustainable development and studying a zero carbon solution was a logical step to further drive both our mission to care for the environment and also further establish our standing and competitive strength in the APAC region. Working with ENGIE we knew that we would be able to establish how to best innovate our plant to not only reach our intended goal but to also do so competitively. We are looking forward to now starting on this road to zero carbon and to offer a truly differentiated and sustainable offering for the growing battery industry,” commented Sylvain David, Energy Transition Manager, Vale New Caledonia.
“Vale New Caledonia is setting high standards for the industry, highlighting the need for mining players to push forward with sustainability goals to stay ahead of the curve in an increasingly competitive market. By putting sustainability at the top of its agenda, Vale New Caledonia isn’t just patching over its current challenges but looking at the long-term strategy and future-proofing its business,” said Malavika Bambawale, Managing Director, Head of APAC, Sustainability Solutions, ENGIE Impact.
