  • Data is presented from the mine perspective; providing a like-for-like comparison of assets, using carefully defined supply chain system boundaries
  • Physical production parameters are presented, including ore mined, ore grades and strip ratios
  • Includes mines producing ore for the non-seaborne market, for comparison 
  • Users can input their own assumptions for freight distances, iron ore sales destination and vessel emission factors

Emission data is presented as total tonnes of CO2e and kilograms of CO2e per tonne of contained iron production.

For iron ore, E0 and E1 emissions are defined as follows: 

E0: Scope 1 and 2 emissions relating to the mine site.

E1: E0 plus emissions from iron ore freight to port of delivery.
