“ESG mining standards are the key to sustainable production”

The organisers of Africa Mining Forum have announced a unique digital ESG* partnership with The Stakeholder Company (TSC).

*Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance

“We are very excited to have TSC on board,” says Africa Mining Forum event manager, Elodie Delagneau. “Along with our media partner Mining Review Africa, we look forward to learning from their particular expertise in using AI in managing stakeholder relations and, of course, sharing this specialised and visionary knowledge with our clients and other partners.”

During the upcoming Africa Mining Forum’s five-day digital event from 16-20 November 2020, The Stakeholder Company is the sponsor of the Spotlight session focusing on: Managing ESG Compliance and Investor Expectations.”  Terence Lyons, TSC CEO and Founder, is also a speaker.

Using the power of AI
"Clarion Events Africa is the convenor of Africa Mining Forum and TSC is the global mining stakeholder and issue system,” says Terence. “It’s a perfect match and we look forward to this partnership connecting Africa using the power of AI.”

He adds: “ESG mining standards are the key to sustainable production. Rather than being a simple obligation, ESGs have the potential to unlock and become the pillar of sustainable competitive advantage. Investors are realising that companies with a strong ESG track record outperform their peer group, and this has become especially apparent over the global pandemic.”

Here is a sneak preview of the Spotlight session that will take place on 17 November:

Spotlight #4: Managing ESG Compliance and Investor Expectations
Developing a financially profitable project is no longer the only key aspect investors are considering to fund new projects. Mining companies’ ability to comply with environmental, social and governance components is today an equal investment consideration.

With three critical components that must all be considered, gain insight into finding innovative solutions that jointly deliver compliance as a cohesive whole and not individual parts.
