In recent years, there has been a significant shift in the roles of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in investment decision making. ESG practices are now part of how mining companies and mine sites are being evaluated and has become crucial to the industry. It is no longer enough to achieve a significant improvement on throughput; it’s also important to demonstrate how we support local communities and take steps to reduce carbon footprint and minimise environmental impacts.
AusIMM and Ausenco are partnering to deliver a series of thought-provoking webinars on ESG in mining - we will unpack how ESG factors are - and can be embedded in our work and what the future looks like.
No matter what your role is – a senior leader, a manager, a metallurgist, an engineer, a project manager, or an operator, if you want to create better outcomes for communities, economies and the environment, you can be part of these conversations.
- Webinar 1: Embedding ESG in mining projects, from concept to operation (30th September 2021)
- Webinar 2: Cutting edge technologies enabling sustainability (20th October 2021)
- Webinar 3: The future of the mining industry and ESG (11th November 2021)
About this webinar “Embedding ESG in mining projects, from concept to operation”
Bringing together their expertise in studies, engineering and managing major construction projects, Ben Strong, John Coupe and Daniel Wilford will discuss how ESG is currently considered in front-end studies, engineering design, project delivery and operational optimisation.
Ben and John will introduce the integration of environmental, social and broader cost considerations into studies, engineering design and the development of mining and minerals projects. Daniel will discuss local and community engagement during the project delivery and execution phase with a focus on Ausenco’s current Ravenswood Gold Project.
