SLR Consulting

SLR is a global leader in environmental and advisory solutions, with a team of 1,800 talented professionals delivering advice and support from a network of offices across the world.

With the increasing importance of environmental and related technical challenges, SLR’s focus on environmental know-how, combined with strategic business acumen, offers an attractive proposition for both clients and professionals.

SLR provides world-leading advisory, environmental, and engineering consulting services to address the unique challenges faced by the mining and minerals industry. SLR specializes not only in the mining and minerals client sector, but our strength in the energy, infrastructure, built environment, industry, financial services and power sectors ensures the benefit of a truly varied experience to bear. This is delivered through skills and experience across over 30 contributing technical disciplines.

We work with our clients through the entire mining lifecycle, from resource and reserve definition, valuation, finance support, development, and operations, to mine closure, reclamation and social risk/liability assessment, and management, including Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) challenges.

Our value proposition steers landowners, stakeholders and developers to make responsible decisions. We provide the value in an integrated multidisciplinary approach: aligning communities, investors, and regulatory processes with environmental specialists, engineering disciplines, and strategy advisors to develop solutions that meet the principles of responsible mining and the evolving drivers that come to the fore under the banner of ESG.

Mining companies are increasingly being faced with climate related risk. With this, the implementation of ESG measures is no longer a ‘nice to have’ but a corporate imperative for managing the social license to operate and the carbon footprint of the mining and minerals industry.

A key challenge to the mining industry lies in the paradigm of adapting to a changing landscape in the marketplace, striving to reconnect societal understanding and acceptance of the role and importance of metals and minerals in our lives. The pressure for change from a traditional linear supply model to a more circular economic model is growing. SLR is well positioned to support our clients in the transition from a market sector at risk of being marginalized to one aligned and partnered with a value chain, whose players are taking shared views.
