About the talk
The media is currently full of financial, insurance and supply chain sectors spouting ‘ESG’ and I for one am glad to hear it. However what does this mean in reality for your specific company and its operations? Using my extensive experience of reviewing both operational and development projects from around the globe, and particularly in Northern Europe, I aim to demystify their demands. I will show you that much of what is being asked for is easily translated to what is happening on the ground. Yes, management needs to take ownership of this and there may be a few gaps to fill, but chances are it is a lot less work than you may think.
But now I'm going to head over to see an assessment to close this out. So I'm safe Yanez from srk Consulting and she's going to be talking about how to translate that. It's a action on the ground in to investigate assisted of making that making the link from the investor sides that that Kevin was talking about down to Rio practical on the ground action. So if you don't Thanks very much ahead. And it's really lovely to be here and a Zelda mentioned. I also come from a company or or site perspective having worked with srk
Consulting in our South African and UK practices for over 20 years of the team that I work with. We do impact assessments. We do due diligence. We do I load monitoring. So we really do understand everything from initial exploration support of minor and major companies and the finances and understanding and managing ESG risk. So from the earlier presentations who heard about the growing attention being placed by investors on the disclosure of ESG data
with his comment on changing societal expectations and the need to build trust BlackRock CEO. Larry Fink made in his letter that he is used a statement which really told to me and it said the money we manage is not our own. We have a deep responsibility to see these institutions and individuals who are shareholders in your company in thousands of others to promote long-term value. I really think that that just shows how increasing societal expectations are around this matter.
