Beca and Black & Veatch Announce Collaboration to Deliver Solutions for a more Sustainable Australian Mining Industry

Beca & Black & Veatch (B&BV) have announced a collaboration to deliver sustainability and decarbonisation solutions, combined with a strong local presence, to service minerals and metals operations across Australia.

“Clients recognise the need for more sustainable operations and more efficient resource management approaches from extraction and processing through to delivery. Our collaboration brings sustainability expertise, at scale, to mining operations across Australia,” said Paul Language, a Business Director at Beca. “We understand what it takes for miners to succeed in Australia”.

“Clients have set ambitious sustainability and decarbonisation goals and we are helping them develop and implement the sustainability roadmaps that will make these goals attainable,” said Jim Spenceley, Senior Vice President of Black & Veatch’s mining business. “For many years B&BV have collaborated for the benefit of clients in New Zealand and we look forward to extending our services to Australia.”

Part of B&BV’s strength is a strong shared culture. Both are employee-owned, a business model that has been delivering success for more than a century for each organisation. Both companies are committed to the safe delivery and management of critical infrastructure, and embracing reconciliation in the minerals and metals sector. Sustainability and responsible corporate stewardship are core to both companies’ operations, in the way they act and the projects they deliver.
