    ESG, Risks and the Path to Responsible Mining

    ESG, Risks and the Path to Responsible Mining

    The energy transition faces many challenges, and mining companies play an essential role in this energy transition with the need for critical minerals. Mining companies have an excellent opportunity to contribute to the energy transition by providing many raw materials. Implementing best practices in ESG (environmental, social, and governance) is crucial in this essential industry. The goal of having responsible mining also represents risks and challenges, but, at the same time, many opportunities today and in the years to come. To discuss these topics, my guest in this episode is Melissa Barbanell. Melissa Barbanell, is the Director of International Engagement US for the World Resources Institute, has over 20 years of experience in environmental policy, government affairs, climate advocacy, and responsible mining.

Tripodoodler is a company with one purpose: to make it easier for travelers to make more sustainable choices through sustainability information for their travel choices. My other guest is Douglas Marett, director of GH Sustainability. GH Sustainability provides companies worldwide with innovative results in sustainable solutions, climate change, energy, and the environment. As a co-host, I have Giorgos Papagianakis from Athens, Greece. Giorgos is an assistant professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Peloponnese in Greece. He is interested in Corporate Sustainability and Innovation and studies why and how organizations incorporate socio-environmental perspectives into their decisions and strategies. For this episode, we will analyze parts of the Deloitte article and provide our perspective on consumer behavior and interest, as well as how the economic aspect could be a factor in changing behavior toward the consumption of sustainable products. As a previous note, this episode's participants, including myself, have no business relationship with Deloitte, and our opinions are based on our analysis of the article. Visit:
