PIP19 - Tailings in the mining sector: Opportunities for investor action

Presented by

Shelagh Whitley, Director of ESG, PRI

About this talk

With health and safety concerns about the management of tailings in the limelight, this session will look at how investors can proactively identify ESG gaps in the mining sector. In this session, we will: • discuss how to address the fact that the full extent of ESG risks posed by tailings dams in the mining sector is unknown; • explore how new technologies are impacting business models and improving safety standards, as well as opening new income streams; • identify other gaps in governance practices that investors should consider. Froydis Cameron-Johansson, Group Head of International and Government Relations, Anglo American Jaime Gornsztejn, Director, Hermes EOS John Howchin, Secretary-General, Council of Ethics of the Swedish National Pension Funds Moderated by Shelagh Whitley, Director of ESG, PRI
