Transition to the Low-Carbon Economy

In order to achieve a lower-carbon future, there will be a substantial increase in demand for several key minerals and metals. These metals are needed to manufacture cleaner technologies, such as wind, solar and battery-powered technologies. Notably, the global requirement for metals such as copper may increase, which could favourably impact Centerra’s existing copper production from its Mount Milligan Mine.

We recognize our role in the transition to a low-carbon economy. We are investing resources to better understand the role Centerra can play in this transition and how our operations must adapt to remain competitive in this changing economic and environmental landscape.
