RESPONSIBLE RAW MATERIALS
ENABLING RESPONSIBLE EXTRACTION AND USE OF NATURAL RESOURCES
In a rapidly changing world with increasing demand for raw materials, is it possible to make their extraction truly 'responsible'? By unifying various stakeholders' definitions of responsibility, and leveraging existing initiatives and policy, we aim to make it easier for all to apply the same definition and value to "responsibility". This will help to end a perceived disconnect between civil society and mining operations and investment, with a widely-accepted notion based on agreed criteria and quantification methodology.
This year's conference is entitled 'ESG Toolbox, and will build on the knowledge shared and gained last year to showcase tangible, practical tools to help meet ESG objectives, embed that good practice, and sustain momentum towards a responsible, sustainable future.
HOW TO USE THIS SITE
Following on from our initial launch conference in May 2020, we have tried to create a genuinely helpful, open-access repository of useful information, expert opinions and learning materials. All of the presentations from the conference have been uploaded and can be accessed here. We are proud of the selection of perspectives, and are constantly filming new talks and gathering perspectives. Let us know if you are interested in giving a talk yourself, know of anyone we should interview or hear from, or have any ideas for groups you think would be interested in contributing.
We are constantly compiling resources into our Useful Links and Learning Material's sections, but we also know that there are lots of resources out there not currently captured in this website – please let us know of links we are missing.
Our Upcoming Events page shows a range of webinars and events you can access to broaden your knowledge base.
We have a passion for open communication, and genuinely enjoy providing forums for this, be they in-house or public. We have some events in the pipeline, but in the meantime let us know if you would be interested in us facilitating something along these lines for you. Our Learning Material page also has a section on how to run an online conference.
