As part of our first-phase Digging for Climate Change discussion, we brought together leading mining professionals from diverse fields to work through the basics of mining as it relates to climate. The two key issues to understand for the industry are: how is mining affecting the climate; and how are climate change and related attitudes to business affecting mining? Our experts talk through these fundamental questions from both an opportunity and a risk perspective.
