Improving performance site by site
Our Oyu Tolgoi operation currently recycles more than 80 per cent of its water. In terms of water-per-tonne-of-ore processed, it uses less than half the global average of similar mines.
At Oyu Tolgoi, and at all our sites, we have set ambitious water management targets for ourselves. We have not met all of them, but the targets act as a powerful management focus on addressing the issues that matter to the site, the environment and to our stakeholders.
We believe our local approach focuses on the way we can most effectively manage water use. But we know we need to keep pushing ourselves to do more. In time and with continued effort, we are committed to driving performance improvement site by site.
