Here’s why more and more miners are suddenly scrambling for an ESG solution

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials are picking up steam in the mining industry.

Envirosuite (ASX:EVS) CEO Jason Cooper said in the last 12 months the company has had “significant uptick” from senior management in mining companies for its ESG platform.

“The companies have certain requirements from their investors to support greater transparency around environmental, social and governance impact, as well as some of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals,” he said.

“And this certainly has been driving discussions with senior management about our predictive modelling tools and software.”

Cooper said the sector is a good market opportunity for the company – but that mining companies need ESG programs to support their operations.

“I would argue that you can’t operate a mine site effectively without our platform,” he said.

“We know that we have got the broadest capability of anybody in the world.

“And I think [going forward] what you’ll see is a real groundswell around environmental intelligence – we will learn more and more through the data sets that we capture, which will then feed into creating better insight.”
