Last week Amvest Capital hosted a webinar for its professional investor clients which looked at gold’s ESG credentials. Investors are increasingly asking if gold can be considered an ESG compliant asset. We believe it certainly should and were delighted to participate in the webinar to highlight what the gold mining sector is doing in the ESG space.
I was joined for the webinar by two of our Members, Claire Larner, Director External Relations at Newmont Mining and Philipa Varris, Executive Vice President and Head of Sustainability at Golden Star Resources. We discussed the World Gold Council’s Responsible Gold Mining Principles and how the respective companies are implementing them; climate change and the transition away from fossil fuels to alternative energy sources as well as how the gold mining sector is contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
