Learn why ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) topics - including carbon reduction - are increasing in importance among large mining and industrial companies, and more importantly, the implications for their suppliers.
But what is ESG? And why exactly is it important to supplier companies? You have your carbon number by using the SIMSA carbon calculator - available for free HERE - but now, how do you reduce that number and what do you do with it? How do you profit from it?
In this virtual lunch and learn we will discuss:
- The basics of ESG and why it is becoming more important to your customers, employees, investors, and other stakeholders
- The value proposition for ESG (Yes, you can profit from ESG!)
- Three things you can do to start implementing ESG initiatives in your business
