Buchanan hosts panel event with Women in Mining UK and the World Gold Council

On Wednesday 12 February, Buchanan hosted a panel event, in conjunction with Women in Mining UK and World Gold Council (WGC), on the topic of the WGC’s new ESG framework, the Responsible Gold Mining Principles, to ensure gold mining companies can provide confidence to investors, analysts, consumers, and other stakeholders that their gold has been responsibly sourced.

Our attendees learned what impact the Principles will have on gold companies, what steps they must take to implement them, and what are the ramifications if the Principles’ requirements are not met.

Our panellists included Terry Heymann – Chief Financial Officer, World Gold Council; Alex Buck – ESG and Corporate Communications, Endeavour Mining; Bruce Jackson – Associate Director, Engagement Services, Sustainalytics; and Gordon Wilson – Senior Manager (Sustainability Assurance), PwC, and was moderated by our own Ariadna D. Peretz who is also the Head of Communications for Women in Mining UK.
