"I’m paranoid about tailings dams” -  Mark Bristow, CEO, Barrick

Brumadinho bought the issues of ESG into sharp focus earlier this year. Over the past few years, ESG has been gaining importance in the minds of miners. 

According to a leading major, “five years ago, ESG was a passing mention on slide 25 of our corporate presentation; in 2019 it is the first five slides.” 

However, is the mining industry’s talk being turned into good practice? An increasing number of portfolio fund managers and PE firms are embedding ESG policy into their Investment processes – are they convinced?
