Energy, Mining & Resources

Generating abundant clean energy is essential for sustainable living. So too is the efficient supply of critical minerals. So we’re enhancing both. From exploration to delivery; for our homes, businesses and industry.

Matching world-class research expertise in earth sciences, mining engineering and artificial intelligence with broader strengths in science, economics and social planning, we’re finding better ways to power our world.
