Human existence and progress rely on a sustainable supply of minerals. As global population and demand for mineral resources continue to grow, mining aims to become a high-tech industry with greater productivity, safety and returns.
While we must develop and utilize mineral resources effectively and efficiently, we should also provide mineral resources responsibly. The latter requires ever smaller environmental footprints, using clean energy technologies, following innovative mine closure concepts and considering greater demands for transparency.
Innovations and digital technologies could catapult mining into a new era of greater responsibility and stakeholder engagement. Sustainability is no longer an option but an imperative in mining.
