CLIMATE CHANGE STATEMENT FROM RESOURCE INDUSTRY NETWORK

 

Resource Industry Network (RIN) aims to build a prosperous and resilient Mackay-Isaac-Whitsunday community by leveraging the collective capabilities of the region’s world-class engineering and heavy industrial sector.

As a foundation of Australia’s METS capability, the resources sector is one of our best nurseries of new technologies, practices and innovations to address climate change. In that respect, we believe strong and practical climate action means reducing emissions in a meaningful, innovative, and commercially responsible manner.

RIN supports global agreements that provide for international cooperation and the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement. RIN advocates for the Commonwealth Government to set a national emissions reduction target in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement.

In accordance with our charter, RIN aims to inform and educate all members of the community to understand the need to plan for changes which might affect their businesses and the regional communities in which they operate.

We are proud of RIN members’ efforts to lower emissions in their own operations by improving energy efficiency and adopting renewable energy where possible. 

The development of technology is critical in reducing emissions and to that end, our members and the resources services sector are actively pursuing, creating and deploying solutions across the resources value chain to address this need.
