"There’s no competitive advantage to be lost by collaborating"
Catriona Beadel, mining executive to the CEO Energy & Minerals at Rio Tinto, told Mining Journal the COVID-19 crisis represented an opportunity for the mining industry to demonstrate its central role in society, however, expressed concern that the immediate need to cut costs, combined with a collapsed oil price, could set back the climate change agenda.
She also called on industry majors to share knowledge with junior companies with fewer resources, and for more collaboration in general to fight the pandemic.
Mining Journal Stakeholder Engagement is a platform for conversation between the mining industry and key stakeholders. The programme is designed to help set a practical path to better engagement, reduced risk and better practices.
