From roads and houses and from to satellites and computers, mining is a ubiquitous source of materials for many industries. Its economic importance is underpinned by its added value to communities through investments in people and infrastructure, as well as through induced employment in multiple sectors and via taxes paid into national budgets.
Mining is driven by the fundamental force of human development, for which it has long played a crucial part. However, mining undoubtedly has significant environmental impacts which have long been and continue to be scrutinised. Faced with such pressures, today’s mining industry has a long tradition of innovative technological solutions for maximising benefits while minimising costs and risks.
Nevertheless, the mining industry suffers from the heritage of its bad image, which is often the greatest obstacle for new projects. In the contemporary business environment, it is not enough to just meet the legal requirements. What is really required is holistic and sustainable management, integrating economic, social and environmental aspects in order to manage stakeholder expectations and work towards the co-creation of long-term added value.
