Net zero emissions target puts NSW economy and jobs at risk

Infrastructure

Quality infrastructure is crucial to a strong mining industry and the economic wellbeing of the state.
 
We use the road, rail and port systems to transport and trade our minerals, which in many cases is funded by our industry. We also provide the fuel for most of the state’s electricity generation and we use this energy to support our operations.
 
Our miners contribute to infrastructure that supports people living in mining towns, such as new and upgraded roads and water infrastructure that boosts drinking supplies and has even drought-proofed towns.
 
While hard infrastructure helps keeps our economy moving, adequate social infrastructure is essential for towns and regions that expand or contract as a result of mining activity. That’s why the right policies must be in place and the right investments made by governments and business to ensure that mining towns are attractive places to live and that services like health, schools and childcare keep pace with the changing needs of regional NSW.
