Low-Carbon Nickel

Low-Carbon Nickel offers a sustainable product with a minimal carbon footprint well below the global average.

Responsible production 

Low-Carbon Nickel is a step further reaching Boliden's aim to create a sustainable future for generations to come. Thanks to recent innovations trom the electric trolley line at Kevitsa to the state-of-the-art nickel smelter in Harjavalta, we are saving over 18,000,000 kg of CO2 emissions yearly when producing nickel matte. 

Low-Carbon Nickel with a low carbon footprint 

With a minimal carbon footprint, measuring less than 5 kg of CO2eq per kg nickel equivalent – we are well below the global average of over 34 kg of CO2eq in 2024.

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.
