Embracing ESG to Build Trust in Mining Investments – A Panel Discussion

ESG – environmental, social, and governance – and the issues it encompasses has come to the forefront of the mining industry. External influencers such as institutional investors are demanding increased attention on ESG drivers and looking beyond financial performance, while insurance companies also consider ESG performance in their coverage pricing and terms. Further, new standards and frameworks have been introduced against which mining companies are being measured. Against this background, it can be difficult for mining companies to navigate what is important and how best to report their performance, with numerous issues on the ESG agenda for the industry including tailings management, climate change and resiliency planning, mine closure, human rights, stakeholder engagement, and transparency, among others. This panel discussion dives into these issues from the perspectives of the mining, investment, and insurance communities.

  • Kim Morrison, Senior Director, Global Tailings Management Technical Services, Newmont
  • Kelly Ward, Vice President, Mining, Metals & Minerals – U.S. Practice Leader, Marsh

  • Ryan Bond, Head of Climate and Sustainability, Insurance Initiative, Marsh
