Investor panel: ESG risks and opportunities for mining companies and investors
- Environmental, social and governance best practices are no longer niche – how can mining turn a corner to attract new sources of capital and co investment from ESG mandated funds?
- How could a global pandemic and financial markets fall out change corporate and investor mindsets towards ESG? Will it be lower on the list than delivering shareholder value?
- How can miners justify their position in a portfolio: clearer social purpose; human rights due diligence; provenance; minimising environmental impacts
- Where do ESG indices and funds get the data they base their investment decisions on? Issues with multiplication of standards
- Could ESG risk become commoditised and how can industry safeguard against that?
- How can mining better communicate it’s societal benefits? Is the promise of decarbonisation and a tremendous infrastructure rebuild the story mining should latch onto?
