The mining industry in Sweden is a driving force for sustainable mining. For this, the industry wants to go beyond becoming fossil free and take even greater responsibility. This includes biodiversity. Join us at this seminar, where we will both explain how it works and show successful examples from the Swedish mining industry.
Our concept, Mining with Nature is a roadmap for mining companies to contribute to biodiversity net gain in all regions where mining and minerals operations and exploration take place. This means that the industry will be investing further in developing innovative solutions for achieving sustainable land use in harmony with nature.
A fundamental basis of the concept is to start from science and the mitigation hierarchy; to avoid, minimize, restore and compensate for impact on biodiversity.
Increased consideration for biological diversity must be profitable. Not only for nature but also for business. To our knowledge, the Swedish mining industry is the very first sector to apply this approach on biodiversity. Our ambition is that it will serve as inspiration also for the international mining community and for other industrial sectors.
