Summary

The latest in the series Investor Expectations on Mining Companies, provides a guide to investors to have constructive engagement with the Boards of mining companies to consider and direct more sustainable strategies with the aim of mitigating the long term risks to us as investors. Whilst primarily aimed at diversified mining companies, the guide can equally be applied to any single commodity and therefore be used to inform engagement with companies focused on particular commodity groups such as thermal coal, precious metals, copper or rare earth metals. The guide sets out investor expectations and offers sample questions for engagements in reference to six areas of concern: Governance, Operational Efficiency, Strategy implementation, Preparedness for the physical impacts of climate change, Public policy and Transparency and disclosure.
