The metals and mining sector is increasingly exposed to ESG risks, including concerns around emissions, water use, deforestation and community relations. As emerging societal pressure grows for companies to act responsibly in tackling priorities such as climate change, the mining industry response is critical for investor confidence.
The International Council on Mining & Metals (ICMM), for example, has issued its Mining Principles. The Gold Council has recently published its Responsible Gold Mining Principles framework, and respected organisations such as the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) publish international standards to help mining and oil & gas companies improve the management of their operations.
In this Mining Indaba webinar, we hear from industry thought-leaders on how:
- Investors are increasingly integrating environmental, social and governance, or ESG, into their investment process to help secure capital during fundraising
- Investors identify risks during due diligence and capitalise on opportunities post-acquisition
- Companies effectively facilitate information disclosure in exit
- Investors – by way of impact investing - are increasingly seeking value beyond compliance creating a fundamental synergy between economic performance and social progress
