Publication of Climate Change Report

Ferrexpo plc (LSE: FXPO), a producer and exporter of high grade iron ore pellets to the global steel industry, is pleased to announce that its inaugural standalone Climate Change Report has been published today, which is available for download from the Ferrexpo website (Results, Reports and Presentations | Ferrexpo).

The Group's Climate Change Report details a number of climate change related risks and opportunities relevant to the Ferrexpo business, the Group's greenhouse gas emissions footprint, and a potential decarbonisation pathway to achieve net zero iron ore pellet production by 2050.

Following the work completed as part of this report, the Group is also able to announce an updated carbon emissions target of a 50% reduction by 2030 for Scope 1 and 2 emissions, following the achievement of a 30% reduction recorded across 2019 and 2020 combined1. The report also introduces new Scope 3 emissions reduction targets for Ferrexpo, setting 10% as a goal for reducing this category of emissions by 2030, and a 50% target for 20502.

The publication of this report represents the latest stage in Ferrexpo's decarbonisation journey, providing an increased level of understanding of climate change related topics for the benefit of all the Group's stakeholders.

Jim North, Chief Executive Officer of Ferrexpo, commented:

"Our inaugural Climate Change Report represents the culmination of an initial phase of work looking in detail at climate change topics such as climate change risks and opportunities, as well as a bespoke study of one potential decarbonisation pathway for the Group, achieving net zero production by 2050. Despite the impact of the ongoing war on businesses like ours operating in Ukraine, I am pleased that we are able to present a clear strategy for the long term future of our business, showing the significant opportunity that lies ahead through Ferrexpo producing an iron ore product that helps the global steel industry lower its emissions."
