Driving sustainable investment in African Mining

Are Mining Sustainability Standards Fit For Purpose?

•    How do mining sustainability standards align with broader standards that apply to all responsible businesses
•    Are mining standards developed to reflect industry needs or are they driven by investor/consumer/stakeholder needs and expectations?
•    Are there too many mining standards? Is it difficult for miners/investors/ other stakeholder to navigate these?
•    How are industry-led initiatives reflected in the evaluations and outputs of the (ESG) ratings agencies?
•    How forward-looking are the perspectives embedded in industry – do they seek to contribute to net positive impacts?… And, if so, how and at what scale (how ambitious)?
