On Thursday 18 February (4pm GMT) Buchanan is teaming up with Women in Mining UK once more to host a panel on the topic of how consumers are pushing the sustainability agenda forward in the mining industry.
The nature of the mining industry has meant it is removed from end users. This has led to consumers misunderstanding the value the sector creates while also disconnecting miners from the process that converts the resources they produce into manufactured goods. However, that gap is being bridged, and consumers have played a role in it.
Topics to be discussed will include how miners have worked with consumers to achieve a more sustainable industry, how artisanal and small-scale miners are affected, where the discussion about ethical and sustainable mining is likely to go, and how much this discussion is helping remedy misconceptions about the mining industry’s role and value in the world.
