• Mining stakeholders keep talking about Social Licence to Operate, but when will action become the focus?: How is social risk treated differently to other significant risks owned by mining companies and why? and where have companies turned insight into positive action and seen demonstrable improvements in relationships with communities?

• Our responsibility to the planet: improving our environmental sustainability: Where are the environmental pressure points for stakeholders? Is their concern justified?
and what new strategies need to be implemented to ensure that we are operating more sustainably moving forward?
