RMMLF Mining CLE and Virtual Reception (during PDAC): The Rise of the Socially Conscious Investor in the Resource Sector
Tuesday, March 9, 2021 at 12:00pm PST, 1:00pm MST, 2:00pm CST, 3:00pm EST for 1.5 hours
60-minute Virtual Reception to follow presentation from 4:30pm – 5:30pm EST
The rise of socially conscious investors is not merely an altruistic trend. With increased accountability and liability for resource companies associated with environmental, human rights and governance matters, companies that fail to deliver value beyond compliance face increased legal risk as well as financial and reputational consequences. Without increased focus on ESG, resource projects will not reach the social acceptance that is required to become sustainable, and resource companies will not be able to deliver value to their shareholders.
This presentation will consider what issues investors are increasingly focusing on in making a decision to invest in resource companies, and what resource companies should be doing to attract socially conscious investors.
