Twitter can be a great tool. We wrote about it here – a company can achieve so much through its social media use. But is it all just 140 characters on the latest quarterly report? Which is great as it shows successes and progress – but not very easily engaged with.

Here’s 10 tweets from across the industry that we enjoyed throughout August:

Newmont Mining

Though it calls back to an article in July, this is a great tweet purely because the story behind it is exceptional. One female employee who decided that she wanted to succeed in a male dominated trade.  Elizabeth, the mining world is your oyster. Bravo

Anglo American 

Anglo American here with a bit of well-deserved back patting. What better way to show you that they have saved an unbelievable about of water through their process than a never ending gif of Horsehoe Falls, Niagara. We could stare at that waterfall for days.

Rio Tinto

Another gif here, but one that really captures the beauty that there can be in diamonds. Specifically, the 2.24ct Argyle Thea. Just look at it. It’s hypnotising – which I can assure you is not a sales tactic.

De Beers Group
Something a little different this time. De Beers Group owns some exceptional mine development space. Case in point – the Gahcho Kue diamond mine. Here the company is asking for us to vote on which image we think strikes us the most to feature as their homepage. We vote option 1. Purely on the colour contrast of that mine truck popping off the screen.

World Gold Council
The World Gold Council, as mentioned in our top mining companies to follow on twitter, took time out to tweet this very informative infographic. Just when you thought you had too much jewellery in your life you find out that China’s gold jewellery market stands at 784 tonnes!

Caterpillar will be at MINExpo this month and for those who will be in attendance, how on earth are we supposed to find them? Oh….

Joy Global
The Rio 2016 Olympics, as with all Olympics, has the whole world watching. Joy Global took the opportunity to remind its followers that not so long ago, two years in fact, some of its very own technology played a key part in Sochi 2014 Olympics. Oh, just the Olympic Torch Relay.

Atlas CopCo
Following on with the Olympic theme, Atlas CopCo highlighted that for mining companies, working hard can be rewarded. In this case? With a trip to the Olympics of course. See, investing in that flag was a good idea….

Komatsu America
How can a company showcase some of its innovative and game changing technology? Photos are good but glossy well cut video adverts? Yeah…they win

The Man Engine
And we finish our look at our favourite tweets with The Man Engine. This incredible piece of machinery, designed to shine a light (from his headlight) on the mining heritage of the South of England. If thousands of people adorning the streets wasn’t enough, here’s a huge Cornish pasty. Where can we apply to get ours?

How do we get the world to net-zero faster?

Emitwise’s founders, Mauro Cozzi, Eduardo Gómez and Ben Peddie, approached a network of more than 100 of the world's largest enterprises and asked their CEOs, CFOs, and sustainability managers the big question: How do we get the world to net-zero faster? The challenge many shared was the lack of timely and accurate emissions data to enable strategic decisions. Companies often relied on annual audits of their carbon footprint for carbon accounting purposes. However, static yearly results were outdated upon publishing.

Emitwise saves companies an average of 260 working days a year by automating their scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions data. With the added benefits of clean audit trails and auto-populated accounting reports in line with GHG Protocol, all at the click of a button. Their easy to use solution enables businesses to quickly identify the carbon hotspots to target, and the precise real-time data empowers teams to remain agile and respond effectively, making achieving those goals possible.

Unique AI Technology

Emitwise’s unique AI technology empowers businesses to automatically measure, report and reduce their carbon footprint across their operations and supply chain, future-proofing companies for a zero-carbon world. It is the only solution that enables companies to fully automate their carbon accounting across all business units and suppliers, therefore liberating them from the drudgery of collecting and processing emissions data.

By using artificial intelligence to precisely measure emissions in real-time, businesses can identify and tackle carbon hotspots swiftly, enabling them to devise a trackable roadmap to net-zero carbon. At the same time, accurate audit trails and auto-populated annual reports ensure that companies comply with international reporting requirements, and align businesses with global climate targets to mitigate risk across their operations and supply chain. 

The Oren Marketplace

Environmental management, social license to operate, safety, renewable energy to lower emissions and operational efficiency for mining can be supported by a range of digital solutions enabling dynamic operations. To address these issues, Shell and IBM joined forces to create the Oren Marketplace – the first B2B solutions platform for the mining sector. 

With the adoption of many of the digital solutions offered through Oren, mining companies can adapt in real-time to risks or adjust plans ahead of a problem occurring. The goal is a shift towards proactive management as the optimal outcome for all stakeholders – community, shareholders, and employees.

Emitwise was founded with the goal of helping industries across all sectors reduce their carbon footprint. Similarly, Shell aims to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050, or sooner, in step with society and its customers. And Oren is focused on offering innovative products and services that can help mining companies track and reduce their emissions. 

“Oren is the starting point for how we help our mining customers to de-carbonise,” explains Carol Chen, Global Lubricants Marketing, Vice President, Shell. “It’s our ambition to work with sectors like mining to help them find their own pathway to net-zero emissions through collaboration. The Oren marketplace offers a great opportunity for collaboration between the miners and technology companies that are joining this digital marketplace.” 

Web Summit

Emitwise will be showcasing its vision for a net-zero future live from Lisbon at this year’s Web Summit. Bringing together the people and companies redefining the global tech industry, the online event welcomes 100,000+ attendees from around the world to hear from more than 800 speakers and view offerings from 2,500 startups covering a vast range of topics from Data Science and Climate Change to AI and Machine Learning. To find out more and book your ticket visit Web Summit. 

Emitwise is one of many solutions providers on the Oren platform seeking to address the pain points and environmental concerns of heavy industries like mining.
