Environmental Sustainability
and the Mining Industry

For a mining company, responsible environmental management is now a core component of its licence to operate. While there is no question that mining makes an essential contribution to modern society and remains a vital contributor to South Africa’s economy, mining houses are under increasing pressure to demonstrate that they operate in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.

Growing pressure from external stakeholders, including Government, communities, investors, environmental organisations and even consumers, means that mining companies have no choice but to implement sustainable business practices and reduce the impact of mining on the environment throughout the entire life cycle of the mine.

The Joburg Indaba team is thus pleased to bring you an informative and interactive breakfast discussion on this very subject on 11 September at the Johannesburg Country Club, Auckland Park, where we will discuss the different aspects of mining responsibly. Government, industry, mining and legal experts will cover the following key themes:

  • Mine planning and development: creating a sustainable co-existence model between the mine and local environment 
  • The use of technology to minimise the environmental impact of mining 
  • The commercial and environmental aspects of water management 
  • Mine rehabilitation and closure: the opportunities and challenges
  • Creating jobs through environmental rehabilitation

And more….

Attendees will discuss best practices for mining with minimal impact on the environment, what it takes to mine responsibly and what to consider when evaluating the sustainability of a mining project. More information on the programme and speakers will be available very soon.

Our Breakfast Indabas are always very popular so be sure to reserve your place.
