BHP has announced plans to tackle biodiversity loss, in a move that the world’s biggest mining company hopes will put it ahead of rivals in the race to secure the best mineral deposits in the shift to clean energy. The biodiversity goal is part of a wider “social value” scorecard published on Tuesday that includes plans for a revised strategy on indigenous relations and full adherence to a programme on combating sexual assault and harassment in 2023. “The scrutiny of our industry continues to be high and the expectations on us are also high,” said BHP’s chief external affairs officer Caroline Cox.
UK startup Circulor, which uses blockchain technology to map supply chains for companies pursuing greener, more sustainable production, said on Tuesday it had raised $25 million to fund expansion, primarily in the United States. The Series B funding round brings Circulor's fundraising over the last two years to $45 million. The funding round was led by early Tesla investor Westly Group and included investments from the venture capital arms of Volvo Cars, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) and BHP Group, the world's largest listed miner.
A U.S. appeals court has ruled that the federal government may give thousands of acres in Arizona to Rio Tinto Plc for a copper mine, upholding a lower court's ruling and rejecting a request from Native Americans who said the land has religious and cultural import. The 2-1 ruling from the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, issued late Friday night, essentially defers to a 2014 decision made by the U.S. Congress and then-President Barack Obama to give the land to Rio for its Resolution Copper project as part of a complex land swap deal. Apache Stronghold, a nonprofit group comprised of members of the San Carlos Apache tribe and others, said it would appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
