COMMODITIES: WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF MINING

21 JANUARY 2021, 4PM

Hosted by Women in Mining in partnership with Berenberg, this event covers how the mining sector can fulfil projected increased demand while also satisfying investors requirements in relation to ESG.

"As green energy, climate change and emission targets come to the forefront of the political agenda, governments and companies have no choice but to join the energy transition. This will lead to higher demand from the mining companies that provide the necessary metals and minerals to achieve this low-carbon future. Can the industry deliver? In this webinar, kindly sponsored by Berenberg, the panellists will share their perspectives on how the mining sector can fulfil projected increased demand while also satisfying investors requirements in relation to ESG."

HOW CONSUMERS ARE PUSHING THE SUSTAINABILITY AGENDA FORWARD

18 FEBRUARY 2021

This panel discussion is hosted by Women in Mining. 

"The majority of the mining industry has always been removed from its end users. This has led to consumers misunderstanding the value that the sector creates and the role it plays in the overall quality of the life we enjoy.

In this panel, sponsored by Buchanan, our panellists will discuss how a new generation of consumers are pushing the sustainability agenda forward. Topics will include how miners have worked with consumers, how artisanal and small-scale miners are affected, where the discussion about ethical and sustainable mining is likely to go, and how much this discussion is helping remedy misconceptions about the mining industry's role and value in the world."
