A growing global population and shift to global equality has created a dependence on mining; and yet, external stakeholders continue to challenge the environmental assessment space, engagement processes and requirements, as well as cause increasing stringency in regulatory requirements and management standards for such developments.
Put simply, external stakeholders now want to either be involved in the decision-making process, or to be able to clearly see how impacts to people and planet have been considered and avoided for large developments.
In the Strategic Risk Reduction: Embedding ESG & SDG Aspects into Decision-Making course, delegates will learn about the sustainability framework, and how it functions as a means to focus on, identify, and integrate short and long-term social, environmental and financial considerations into the planning, decision-making and operational strategies of proposed infrastructure and developments.
Using the framework, delegates also gain a means to improve transparency of proposed plans amongst design teams and stakeholders involved in the process.
