Commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs)

The UNSDGs, adopted in 2015, set the 2030 global agenda for sustainable development with the premise to ‘Leave No One Behind’. The UNSDGs are a call for global action by all countries to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. We have aligned Vulcan’s approach to sustainability with these goals and will continue to report against them in our annual Sustainability Report.

Task Force on Climate-Realated Financial Disclosures (TCFD)

The TCFD is committed to market transparency and stability. They believe that better information will allow companies to incorporate climate-related risks and opportunities into their risk management and strategic planning processes. As this occurs, companies’ and investors’ understanding of the financial implications associated with climate change will grow, empowering the markets to channel investment to sustainable and reslilient solutions, opportunities, and business models.

In accordance with TCFD guidelines, Vulcan provides a description of what they consider to be the relevant short, medium, and long term time horizons, taking into consideration the useful life of the organisation’s assets or infrastructure.

Minviro Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

Vulcan uses prospective life cycle assessments (LCA) as part of our geothermal lithium process development in oder to reduce environmental impacts of our process for making lithium hydroxide monohydrate (LiOH•H2O) before capital expenditures are incurred. This allows us to quantify our environmental impacts, understand drivers of our impacts, and make decisions about our supply chains an energy use to minimise those impacts.
