Fauna & Flora International's Tom Maddox has called on miners to take lead role
Fauna & Flora International senior technical advisor, Tom Maddox, told Mining Journal miners had an opportunity to play a central role in protecting communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, then aiding a recovery.
"Miners tend to be dominant within a local economy so there’s an opportunity to show leadership at a local level," he said.
However, Maddox said environmental, social and governance concerns for miners played out over a much broader landscape, and he encouraged the industry to take a more 'holistic' approach to these challenges.
Part one of the Tom Maddox podcast is available here.
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.
