Rio Tinto said on Tuesday that it was ready to talk to stakeholders over allegations of human rights breaches at a giant copper mine in Bougainville that it formerly owned, after community members filed a complaint with the Australian government.

One of China’s top climate research institutes says the country will phase out coal power around 2050 on its path toward meeting President Xi Jinping’s new climate targets. Carbon emissions will peak sometime between 2025 and 2030, and total energy demand will start to decline around 2035, according to a new report from Tsinghua University’s Institute of Energy, Environment and Economy, which works closely with the Ministry of Ecology and Environment on projecting long term goals. The report, presented in a webinar on Sunday, is the first road map from a government-affiliated group showing how the country might proceed to becoming carbon neutral by 2060, a goal laid out by Xi last week in a speech to the United Nations.

Australia has pared its forecasts for mining and energy export revenue this year, as liquefied natural gas (LNG) and metallurgical coal earnings are forecast to be slightly weaker than earlier expected.

"In 2020/21, relatively weak resource and energy commodity prices -- with the notable exception of gold and iron ore -- and lower coal export volumes are expected to drive a sizable fall in export earnings," the government said.
