Austmine 2022 webinar series to focus on ESG issues in METS and mining
Across this year, Austmine will provide a comprehensive analysis of ESG – environmental, social and governance – issues in the mining industry and METS sector
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.
