Exploring the case for climate-smart mining at African Mining Indaba

Mining is a key industry and one of the biggest contributors to the Global economy. We know and understand that Mining will continue to play a crucial role in securing a clean and greener world. As the sector continues to evolve, the mining companies continue to invest in sustainability of the environment and that of host communities, we have seen mines prioritise reducing the carbon footprint of mines to mitigate the impact of climate change, as well as the wellbeing of local communities.

We have seen a number of mining companies being rated well for the ESG performance as the sector continues to invest in better resource management to reduce their environmental impact while also investing in technology to improve safety, engineering advances, productivity and efficiencies through automation and digitisation. With the industry acutely aware of the need to operate sustainably, we have seen a significant rise in interest in sustainable finance products, which are used to fund improvements in a firm’s ESG performance.

At Standard Bank, we believe we have a crucial role to play in supporting the future of mining in Africa and are committed to driving the growth of the sector with our in-depth sector insights, innovative banking solutions and a well-established presence across the continent. 

As a proud sponsor of African Mining Indaba, we gathered  with various industry experts at Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) from 9 to 12 May 2022 to  explore how Africa’s mining sector, investors and society can thrive amid the decarbonisation, social, technological and economic considerations that are becoming more prevalent across the continent. 

With mining companies currently enjoying high prices, exceptional production performance and robust supply chains, our mining team anticipates that the sector will continue showing resilience and growth, remaining financially sound in 2022.  Click here to read more.
