Diversifying to support the energy transition

Thiess is growing our commodities portfolio to include metals and minerals critical to the energy transition, and developing services to enable sustainable mining.


The race is on to develop cleaner, lower emission technologies to reduce the world’s dependence on fossil fuels. 

The mining sector plays a pivotal role in supplying the metals and minerals critical to the energy transition. 

Thiess is working to diversify across commodities, services and geographies, to make a meaningful contribution to the world's shift to zero emissions.

By expanding our commodities portfolio to the raw materials needed to support the global energy transition, we're making good progress on our target of rebalancing thermal coal revenue to less than 25% by 2027



Thiess continues to diversify our commodities portfolio. We support the rising demand for metals including copper – essential to the growth in electrification; nickel, zinc and molybdenum – key materials for the renewable energy sector; and lithium, which underpins battery evolution.



We are leveraging our core competencies to develop service offerings for sustainable mining and lower emission markets – including rehabilitation, asset management, technology and consulting services.

In 2022, Thiess continued to expand our service offering with our stand-alone rehabilitation business, Thiess Rehabilitation.
