Abstract: The climate is changing, bringing risks to the mining sector from climate impacts disrupting supply chains to investor preferences altering markets. The sector needs to develop strategies to manage their climate risk and harness their climate opportunities if they want to thrive in the already occurring transition to a low-carbon and resilient economy. Investors are seeking transparency around a firm’s climate risk and opportunities and there is growing pool of sustainable finance money looking to invest in companies who have integrated climate change into their risk management and financial planning. Forward-thinking companies with a climate strategy, coupled with strong governance and accountability, that are reporting their climate risk will succeed. This talk will help the sector move towards decision-useful risk management and reporting.
