Largely viewed as a box ticking exercise a decade ago, ESG has grown in prevalence to be the biggest talking point in mining Boardrooms around the world. As pressure increases for businesses to create sustained outcomes for a broad range of stakeholders, ESG has become a critical factor in decisions about project viability, procurement, technology development, supply chains and workforces.

Participating in this Austmine webinar series will give you a greater understanding of:

  • Why mining and related industries are accelerating ESG commitments and initiatives.
  • How ESG objectives and performance will drive investment and growth in mining, along with procurement practices and supply chain management and how this will affect METS suppliers.
  • The role of technology in helping to achieve ESG goals, including transforming business practices, driving sustainable processes, and measuring and monitoring ESG goal achievement.
  • The key ESG considerations for METS businesses to respond to changing customer requirements and adopt sustainable principles within their own operations.
  • What a sustainable and successful mining industry will look like in the future if ESG objectives are achieved.
