Africa Mining Forum to showcase industry's success in its commitment to ESG

By: Africa Mining Forum
CAPE TOWN, South Africa - Oct. 20, 2021 - PRLog -- "ESG has come a long way in the mining sector," says Elodie Delagneau, event director of Africa Mining Forum; "for a long time it was considered a nice-to-have by mining companies. However, today, there is not a single investment discussion that can avoid the subject. It's official, there has been a shift in the mindset of mining companies: it's not about being the best in the world, but the best for the world."

The ESG principles, environment, social and governance, provide the inspiration and over-arching theme for the upcoming Africa Mining Forum, a tailored mining investment platform for junior miners, mid-cap companies and sustainable technology solutions providers, taking place from 2–4 November 2021.

"From my perspective, the simple definition of ESG is 'giving back', says Laura-Jane Cornish, Editor-in-Chief of Mining Review Africa, key media partner in the event. "It is giving back to the environment, the communities you may have affected and the country you have chosen to settle in. And giving back should be a willing act of desire, not an obligation."

The winners of Mining Review Africa's Mining Elites in Africa 2022 publication will also be announced during the event with a Digital Awards Ceremony. Cornish explains: "these are industry influencers who are innovative in their leadership, improving the greater mining and minerals value chains on a regional level. They are contributing to the progress of mining, are a reflection of responsible corporate citizens and may be the contributing factor to helping a mining operation secure finance."
