Low-Carbon Zinc & Recycled Zinc

A zinc product from our own mines with a low carbon footprint and a product from secondary materials.

Zinc products with a low carbon footprint

We mine Boliden's Low-Carbon Zinc in our own mines, and it is refined at our smelters with good access to fossil-free energy. The value chain has a total CO2 emissions of max 1 kg per produced kg metal, which can be compared with the industry average of approximately 3.6 kg. Our Recycled Zinc is a 100% recycled product from our smelters in Odda and Kokkola.

Our statement on our product CO2 footprint

The mining industry lacks a standardized measurement method for carbon dioxide emissions - we want to change that. We believe transparency is the only way to a sustainable and long-term mining and metals industry. We make the life-cycle assessments of our main metals from cradle to gate, without counting carbon credits and offsets. It improves our possibilities to see in which scope we need to make efforts to reduce our carbon dioxide footprint. In this way, we will achieve our vision of being the world's most climate-friendly and respected metal supplier in the world.
