Social Progress in Mining-Dependent Countries: The role of good governance
Join EITI Chair Rt Hon Helen Clark, NRGI President Suneeta Kaimal, Newcrest Chief People and Sustainability Officer Lisa Ali, Orano CEO Philippe Knoche and ICMM’s Rohitesh Dhawan to discuss the role of good mineral resource governance on 14 July.
14 July 2021, (1pm UK time).
The mining and metals industry can and should be a powerful catalyst for sustainable development. Through the payment of taxes, direct and indirect job creation, local procurement, and infrastructure and community development activities, the mining industry makes a significant contribution to the social progress of countries where they operate, contributing to the delivery of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, governance matters, and transforming these finite resources into sustainable economic growth and social development or ‘social progress’ takes effective mineral resource policy frameworks set and implemented by government, supported by strong partnerships with the private sector.
Join us on 14 July 2021 at 13:00 BST for a conversation about good governance in natural resource management, and the important role this plays in driving sustainable economic growth and social development in mining dependent countries. Panellists include Philippe Knoche, CEO, Orano; Rt Hon Helen Clark, EITI, Chair; Lisa Ali, Chief People and Sustainability Officer, Newcrest; and NRGI President and CEO, Suneeta Kaimal. ICMM’s CEO Rohitesh Dhawan will moderate the discussion followed by an audience Q&A.
The event will discuss findings from ICMM’s latest report: Social Progress in Mining-Dependent Countries: Analysing the role of resource governance in delivering the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
