BHP Group Anticipates Uptick In 2024 Carbon Emissions, Remains Committed To 30% Reduction By 2030

The leading global miner, BHP Group Ltd (NYSE:BHP), has announced an anticipated increase in operational carbon emissions for 2024. Vice President for Climate Graham Winkleman revealed the news during an investor briefing on Wednesday.
