The formation of the SAIMM ESGS Committee has the sole objective of ensuring that our professional membership has a clear understanding of the importance of ESGS and is equipped to navigate the increasing complexity of the mining industry. We seek to inculcate in our DNA a culture of social and environmental sustainability. We have to broaden our membership beyond the engineering and mining disciplines and introduce into the institute a diversity of membership that will serve to soften what is widely perceived as our chauvinistic culture. We need to change the perception the world has of miners. Join us for the launch of the ESGS committee.
