African Mining Indaba – Day 1: 6 February 2023

Earlier this morning, ERM held a breakfast event on the topic of “Releasing women’s full potential in the front line; Practical lessons to unlock value and generate meaningful culture change.” This event was certainly a taste of the discussions to come, revolving around the social impact of mining in Africa.

This topic has been a hot topic in mining worldwide forming part of the “S” in Environmental Social and Governmental related matters (ESG). The agenda at the Mining Indaba this week would follows suit, including a keynote address on “Mining as a catalyst for sustainability in prosperous societies” and many seminars revolving around responsible and sustainable mining, diversity, equity and inclusion throughout the week.

Norton Rose Fulbright had its finger on the pulse in selecting our topic for the legal panel discussion on Wednesday, which will be held at our Cape Town office. Our topic, “ESG as investment criteria” is in theme with the discussions being held at the convention centre and will offer valuable and additional insight into a topic that is essential to success in mining today.
