Mining requires large amounts of energy and water, often in arid and remote areas, and generates a large amount of potentially hazardous waste. Its environmental impact must be managed by implementing efficient and innovative solutions in order to support the productivity of the sites and minimize its environmental footprint.
Delivering cost efficiency
Water, waste and energy, especially in remote parts of the globe, represent a substantial portion of a mine’s expenses. By working to improve the operation and maintenance performance of their environmental assets, mining companies can significantly reduce their costs.
Improving sustainability & environmental performance
Faced with stricter regulatory environment and increased public pressure, mining companies must develop long-term strategies to reduce their risk exposure. By minimizing pollution, demonstrating environmental responsibility and improving cooperation with local communities, they can secure their project’s uptime and acceptance.
