Jamie Macdonald moderates a panel discussion on ESG and Mining Sustainability in 2021 and Beyond.
James Kamau discusses how ESG is part of the response to COVID-19 and how many organisations, including DLA Piper Africa, is implementing ESG principles during this time.
In many African countries, mining is the backbone of their economies. Often, however, little consideration is given to environmental, social and governance (ESG) implications when a mining resource has been depleted or becomes uneconomical to mine. An appropriate legal framework that deals with mining rehabilitation is vital as part of sustainable mining.
In 2017, drastic and sudden changes affected the mining sector in mainland Tanzania. The Parliament of Tanzania, in a bid to protect the country’s natural resources and the employment opportunities for its citizens, passed a series of legislations in July 2017 aimed towards achieving these objectives.
