For its Wednesday, February 24, 2021 meeting, CIM’s Management and Economics Society is pleased to welcome:
Theo Yameogo Ph.D., P.Eng., MBA
National Mining & Metals Sector Co-Leader
Ernst & Young LLP
who will deliver a presentation on:
Current Trends and Opportunities in the Mining and Metals Industry
Abstract: In its 13th annual series about Top 10 Mining Risks and Opportunities, EY has confirmed that License to operate (LTO) remains the number one issue for the sector, with 63% of our survey respondents flagging it as top 3 risk. LTO and environmental, social and governance (ESG) are becoming more prominent as social responsibility and broader stakeholder demands intensify, and as we continue to struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic. We expect the issue to become even more important as stakeholders broaden and develop a stronger voice. The 2019 highly ranked Workforce and Digital Transformation risks in 2019, now sit at 7 and 9, respectively. We believe their lower ranking indicates that miners believe these issues are now better managed and, for some, business as usual. The disruption caused by COVID-19 indicates a return to volatility in the sector and miners need to be able to make sustainable, long-term decisions as they deal with the return of severe commodity price volatility, the threat of substitution and changing customer demand. The presentation will discuss the data in more depth to provide useful insights to the attendees.
