Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa has presented the new Strategy including the Group’s Subsidiaries until 2030. The Company intends to strengthen its leading position in the coking coal and coke sales market in Europe. It wants to increase the mining output, efficiency and simultaneously place a strong emphasis on environmental protection. The Group plans to maintain its status of a leading supplier of the strategic raw material required in the production of steel, which is indispensable for sustainable development and transition to a low-emission economy.
Environmental protection is an extremely important element of the JSW Group Strategy. The document assumes that the carbon footprint would be reduced by 30% by 2030 and that carbon neutrality would be achieved in 2050. The goals are to be achieved mainly by reducing methane emissions, which account for 74 percent of JSW’s carbon footprint. Since 2018, JSW Group has been running a program named “Economic Utilization of Methane” aimed at reducing methane emissions into the atmosphere and utilizing it for energy production. The other program planned for reducing methane emissions is “Reduction of Methane Emissions”, which aims to increase methane capture to 50% and methane utilization to 95%.
