ESG Financing Requirements: Opportunities and considerations for the British Columbian and Canadian mining sector
Few mining projects in British Columbia (BC) and Canada have had to conform with international ESG performance standards as it relates to financing. This landscape is changing rapidly and the mining sector will need to prepare as there are important differences between the regulatory environment and financing requirements. This luncheon presentation begins by highlighting the experiences Janis has had with numerous global and BC-based extractive projects with a focus on practical implementation needs. The second part of her presentation outlines Artemis Gold Inc.’s approach to ESG performance. As Chair of the Health, Safety, Environment and Social Performance committee with Artemis’s Board of Directors, Janis will highlight opportunities and considerations for mining projects in BC and Canada.
