Driving growth in a changing climate with environmental intelligence


Driving growth at mining operations in a changing climate with environmental intelligence

Frost and Sullivan’s latest report on environmental intelligence has shown that mining operators are facing increasing challenges with meeting production targets, achieving social licence to operate and are up against stricter regulations.

Over 270 operational managers around the world were interviewed for the report and over 50 per cent of total respondents have experienced dramatic or significant impacts on their organisation on account of environmental factors over the last three years.

Insights from the report show that Mining operations are experiencing environment-related factors on a scale of 1-10 in the organisation through:

  • Health & safety risks of operations to their workforce (7.5/10)
  • More stringent environmental regulations / penalties / reporting and compliance requirements (7.3/10)
  • Impact to bottom-line through unplanned stoppage as a result of complaints, community opposition or health safety environment (HSE) breaches (7/10)

Free panel discussion with Frost & Sullivan and Envirosuite on Wednesday December 9

As mining operations reimagine how they use technology to transform business, leverage and extract more value out of data and build sustainable communities, environmental intelligence is expected to be at the forefront.

Join us on December 9 (3PM AEDT) for a free panel discussion where Frost & Sullivan and Envirosuite will discuss report findings on how mines are using environmental intelligence to benefit their operations by tackling cost challenges, achieving social licence to operate and positively impacting their financial bottom line.

The panel will include Frost & Sullivan and our industry experts, where we are going to be unpacking key findings from the report and what it means for mining operations today.
