GMG Workshop: Climate Action

Calling on experts – join and collaborate in real-time!

The impact of climate change is being felt around the world, and the mining industry has been vocal about the action that must be taken to protect our future. The development of the GMG Climate Action Working Group aims to create a collaborative space in which leaders can address industry concerns, and produce innovative solutions. This workshop will focus on defining which are the top priorities in regards to climate action in order to shape the future of the new GMG working group.
