INVESTMENT TEAM DIRECTOR, CHURCH OF ENGLAND PENSIONS BOARD, & CO-CHAIR OF THE INVESTOR MINING & TAILINGS SAFETY INITIATIVE
"The collective realization that waste has been managed as an externality was alarming, and despite the good practice that existed within some companies, this was a sector-wide systemic challenge that needs serious focus from investors."
CEO, CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE FOR MINING INNOVATION (CEMI)
"If we consider waste management in our own households, 30 years ago everything went to landfill, but in time we have learned to re-use and recycle. The same can be said for many industrial business sectors, but the mining industry has not adopted this kind of waste diversion."
"We are proud of our role in developing the new Global Tailings Standard, having spent a lot of time with the organizations involved to provide experience and input that went a long way to shape the Standard. Quellaveco will meet international standards from day one."
