    Louise Pearce, Global Managing Partner, Mining Sector, ERM

    speak on the   

    Sustainable Mining – The New Business Imperative

    The mining sector is enjoying a resurgence. Yet, long-term success in today’s dynamic landscape requires both agility and stability. Implementing sustainable practices is key to achieving both of these. They reduce risk, minimize environmental impact, encourage innovation, and maximize shareholder value.

    True sustainable mining means addressing environmental, health, safety and social (EHSS) factors at both an operational and a cultural level, in order to maintain momentum and inspire change long term. This discussion builds on a recent WIM Toronto talk on sustainability, and looks at elements that make up the foundation of sustainable mining practices. These include the need for companies to educate their people, transform their processes, and optimize their stakeholder relationships.

    Date: Wednesday, May 9, 2018

    Time: 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM

    Location: Norton Rose Fullbright - 200 Bay Street, Suite 3800, Royal Bank Plaza, South Tower, 

    Cost: Members: $15, Non-members: $25  (Lunch will be provided)
