Sharon Singh and Serge Dupont write in Canadian Mining Journal on how the intensifying focus on Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) factors will underpin the acceleration of three interconnected trends for the Canadian mining industry in 2022:
- Capitalizing on an ESG narrative and opportunity
- Water use and innovation
- Canada’s regulatory framework and reconciliation
Sharon and Serge say that these trends are not emerging; rather the legal and policy developments in these areas are rapidly increasing.
