Gold Miners, Responsible Mining and Climate Change

Presented by

John Mulligan, Director of Market Relations and Climate Change Lead, World Gold Council and Tim Harvey, CEO, NTree

About this talk

Tim Harvey talks to John Mulligan about issues relating to responsible mining and the actions being taken by gold mining companies to mitigate climate change. Questions to be covered include: 1. What are the current areas of focus in responsible mining and what should investors expect in terms of ‘wins’? 2. Are there any mining companies that really stand out in terms of their actions, or that are the pace setters in terms of others wanting to emulate? 3. On climate change, what are the areas of most concern to investors, are there any regional differences? 4. Where do you see the industry making the most progress in mitigating climate change in the next five years? 5. An overview of how different climate scenarios might affect gold’s performance. John Mulligan is Director of Market Relations and Climate Change Lead at the World Gold Council (WGC), leading its climate change research programme and associated engagement with investors, policy makers and stakeholder organisations. Additionally, he contributes to the organisation’s wider insight and communications outputs to improve understanding of the whole gold supply chain, and the integration of ESG considerations into strategic market and investment perspectives.

NTree’s goal is to educate European investors on the investment opportunities in the Chinese and Commodities markets. As the Chinese economy continues to grow at breakneck pace and China remains at the forefront in innovation in high-tech sectors, the investment case for China is stronger than ever. Meanwhile, world market volatility further highlights the necessity for European investors to consider adding Commodities to their portfolios both for diversification, and for momentum. We believe that both phenomena are inextricably linked, and present unique opportunities to the discerning investor - we intend to support investors in uncovering those opportunities.
