At the International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) in Melbourne this year, we introduced our Sustainability services to the sector and asked attendees about priorities aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Which 3 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are most relevant to your organisations’ future success?
These are our results.
Keen to benchmark the priorities for people working across the global mining & resources sector in 2019, we worked closely with IMARC organisers to develop a live poll for delegates to vote through the conference app, with results also tallied at our exhibition stand.
While the number one priority may not come as a surprise, many people were keen to expand their choices beyond three. In light of this and other insights, we include the nominated top 5 priorities here:
GOAL 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
GOAL 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
GOAL 3: Good Health and Well-Being
GOAL 5: Gender Equality
GOAL 11: Sustainable Cites and Communities
Social license and long term impact
There was unprecedented international attention on IMARC this year, with protestors and ensuing media putting a spotlight on the industry as a whole.
The theme of ‘social license to operate’ occupied the programme on day two with various sessions focused on issues that align to the SDGs overall. With this level of focus, there was great consensus that the adoption of sustainable practices will become increasingly crucial to the long-term success in of the industry.
