Over 30 years ago, the United Nations concurred that urgent action was needed to counteract anthropogenic climate change. The mining industry can make a major contribution to climate protection. Austrian mining operators were surveyed on current actions taken in their companies. Moreover, attitudes towards climate change, personal actions, and knowledge about the climate were examined. Findings show that more than half of the companieshave implemented or planned 70% of the operational measures listed in the survey. These include calculation of energy consumption, implemented by 94%, as well as rather planned measures that are currently rarely realised, such as drawing energy from entirely renewable sources, implemented by 6%. Moreover, about two-thirds of polled people can derive business advantages from climate change.
