‘ESG’ is an ever-growing concept with old roots. Indigenous Peoples have been working with community and ecosystem wellbeing mindset for thousands of years. With the advent of new technologies and ways of accounting for true value, we can create real economic value while stewarding our primary relationships as an integrated approach to mineral exploration.
In this big talks session, we will take a deep, real, and meaningful dive into what ‘ESG’ means from an Indigenous perspective, how these principles are being applied on the ground, and the opportunities it presents for the industry. Through conversations with experts sharing real experiences, perspectives, and wise practice working with the land and harnessing the latest in technologies to support traditional ecological knowledge, we hope to vision a path forward that supports thriving futures for all.
