Environmental, social and governance an imperative for long-term mining in Africa

Green TechnologyIntelligent TechnologySouth AfricaTop Stories

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) imperatives have taken a prominent role in decision-making across the African mining sector, with intensified awareness from all stakeholders.

The 2022 Investing in African Mining Indaba will explore what ESG means in practice for Africa’s mining operators, communities and jurisdictions.

As economies emerge from the global pandemic and countries grapple with climate change, ESG continues to play a core role in mining across Africa with investors, funders and consumers placing greater trust in organisations that show a long-term interest in these standards.

This year’s Mining Indaba will make the ESG topic a mainstage focus area under this year’s overarching theme, “Evolution of African Mining: Investing in the Energy Transition, ESG and the Economies”. The programme will explore and share industry lessons on the progress made in mining’s ESG-focused investment environment, unpack the role of technology and examine the risks, uncertainties, and opportunities post-COP26.

Speakers and industry representatives, including International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) CEO, Rohitesh Dhawan; CEO-Designate and MD Minerals at Exxaro Resources, Dr. Nombasa Tsengwa; and EITI Africa Director, Bady Baldé, will holistically tackle ESG issues and explore the energy transition which demands ESG rigour and provides the potential to grow our economies.
