Petra Diamonds, the diamond mining company with mines in South Africa and Tanzania, has signed a long-term power purchasing agreement with Etana Energy, South African energy supplier, to provide its South African operations at Cullinan and Finsch with renewable energy from Etana's existing and future wind and solar projects. Etana will supply between 36% and 72% of the estimated energy requirements starting from financial year 2026 onward, aimed at reducing Petra's GHG emissions well ahead of the 2030 target. Richard Duffy, CEO of Petra Diamonds commented; "Alongside traceability and provenance of our diamonds, strengthening our sustainability credentials is an important step to differentiating Petra's product offering."
