Mining Capital's Alastair Ford talks to Katie Pilbeam about the importance of ESG - Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance - for miners in the modern world. He describes ESG funding which can be invested in sports teams, schools, hospitals - which he says is 'very cost effective'.
Ford highlights the cost of not complying with ESG - which is much higher on all levels.
He says 'all companies should be taking ESG seriously' considering it is the mining industry that will be digging up the windmill panels for solar power'. He says 'the world is now waking up to ESG'.
