Net-Zero Carbon Target
KBK recognizes that the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call to action for all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. The goals recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
KBK is committed to The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and achieving a net-zero carbon target, focusing on reducing our environmental impacts and producing carbon-neutral raw materials.
Our strategies for assessing the sustainability of mining operations include measuring, monitoring, and working to improve various environmental performance metrics, and these are used to determine whether a mining operation is sustainable.
Our key metrics for environmental sustainability in mining relate to efficiencies in resource consumption, minimizing land disturbance, pollution reduction, carbon offsets, as well as a mine closure plan, which includes KBK Quarry transitioning into a renewable energy project through the installation of a floating solar farm in the open pit area. This will potentially provide 20MW of clean green energy to the local grid and reclamation of exhausted lands into recreation parks and permaculture farming areas.
