The mining industry is at a crossroads. Currently, there is an estimated $25 billion worth of projects around the world that have been stopped as the the consequence of a dispute or disagreement with their community, the government or some other stakeholder.
Anglo American chief executive officer Mark Cutifani is one who sees the mining industry in need of change and on Dec. 12, he gave the keynote address for the launch the Kellogg Innovation Network’s Mining Company of the Future Initiative’s Development Partner Framework (DPF). The launch was held at the Ford Foundation building in New York City.
The DPF seeks to inspire and support the mining industry to adopt a new way of thinking and a new approach to how it secures, nurtures and revitalizes its social license to operate.
