As the resources industry looks to operationalise Net Zero targets, develop critical minerals’ supply chains to support the global energy transition, and embrace the reshaping of the value chain, collaborating on ESG opportunities and risks remains high on the agenda across the industry.
There has never been a more critical time for the industry to implement and expand its strategic and operational initiatives of creating social value and minimising harm to the environment than now – especially as one of the key ESG requirements relates to climate change.
With investors, financiers, stakeholders, and regulators demanding ESG disclosures, miners are having to follow through on commitments around the minimising of waste, energy and water, highlight rehabilitation and repurposing plans at mine planning stages, and have better visibility over their supply chains to ensure their own values on human rights and ethics are being adhered to. Miners are also needing to increase their engagement with the communities they operate within and ensure overall transparency and accountability of their businesses as a result of greater ESG demands.
