Glencore ‘Advancing Everyday Life’ Australian advertising campaign

Media statement
Sydney, Australia
21 June 2022

 

Glencore has launched its first national advertising campaign in Australia.

The ‘Advancing Everyday Life’ campaign highlights Glencore’s corporate purpose and aims to introduce the Glencore of today to a broader audience and highlight our company’s role in providing the energy needed for today, as well as the green metals essential for a low carbon future.

Glencore’s Australian Head of Corporate Affairs Cassandra McCarthy said: “As people focus on a greener and more sustainable future, we want to highlight the role mining and the commodities we produce in Australia play in everyday life and their importance in a low carbon world.

“Glencore is one of the world’s largest mining companies and Australia’s leading producer of green metals like, nickel, cobalt, zinc and copper, as well as high-quality coal.

“Our green metals are essential for renewable technology like solar panels and wind turbines. They’re also critical for low-emission technology like electric cars and battery storage.

“Glencore has a global ambition to achieve net zero total emissions by 2050. This includes not only our direct emissions (Scope 1 and Scope 2), but also those emissions from the use of our commodities (Scope 3).

Glencore has been operating in Australia for over 25 years, has 24 mines across the country and provides work for 18,000 Australians in Queensland, New South Wales, the Territory and Western Australia.

“We’re not well known outside of the communities where we operate and now is the time for us to show our approach to responsible mining and the role of green metals in the production of low and zero carbon products.”

“We want to show people that mining can and must be responsible and sustainable by sharing examples of how we work across our Australian business,” Ms McCarthy said.

“We have a world class coal business in Australia that leads the way in mine site closures and land rehabilitation.

“We work with our local communities and often go above and beyond to return mined land back to farmland and native forests. You must see it to believe it and we’re proud to showcase our mine rehabilitation and the men and women behind it.”
