Media Backgrounder: MAC Climate Change Announcement

MAC’s new TSM Climate Change Protocol replaces the TSM Energy Use and GHG Emissions Management Protocol, last updated in 2013, and provides a measurable framework to help our industry implement our collective commitment to the ambition of the Paris Agreement. The protocol and associated guidance helped limit impacts to the environment and reduced operational costs at the mine-site. In order to ensure the mining industry is held to continually higher standards of performance, and in response to our Community of Interest Advisory Panel’s advisory statement on climate change, the new protocol positions Canada’s mining industry as a leading partner in the fight against climate change.

The new TSM Climate Change Protocol is a tool to support companies in integrating climate change considerations in their operations in a more holistic manner. The protocol is comprised of three performance indicators:

  1. Corporate climate change management
  2. Facility climate change management
  3. Facility performance targets and reporting
