The dual study program, traditional to Germany, is eagerly adopted in many parts of the world – last but not least, by foreign subsidiaries of German companies. Bauer Equipment Malaysia Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Bauer Maschinen GmbH near Kuala Lumpur, first hired three apprentices in 2018. Now after three and a half years, they have successfully completed their training as mechatronics engineers.
Epiroc, a leading productivity and sustainability partner for the mining and infrastructure industries, has agreed to acquire JTMEC. The Australian company specializes in providing mines with electrical infrastructure, supporting the industry’s transition to battery electrification.
Nordic Mining has appointed new Commercial Director to strengthen its sales and marketing operations going forward.
RMI Report 2022 reveals little ESG Action at Mine Sites
Gender results (Source: RMI Report 2022)
In its latest assessment of 40 companies and 250 mine sites, the Responsible Mining Foundation highlights a striking disconnect between corporate commitments and mine site action on critically important ESG issues.
Commitments are now commonplace, yet basic actions at mine sites – to inform and engage with communities and workers on for example safety issues or environmental impacts – are rarely evident. Some 94% of the mine sites score an average of less than 20% on the fifteen basic ESG issues assessed. It is at mine sites where the risk of harm is greatest and companies can certainly be expected to show respect for those most exposed to these risks. And without evidence that corporate commitments and protocols are being implemented at mine-site level, the credibility of these HQ measures will be limited.
At a time when many companies are announcing record profits and ambitious plans on technical issues such as emissions reductions or efficiency gains, there is an urgent need for a similar level of effort and leadership to ensure responsible practices across companies’ operations.

Dams and reservoirs are suffering from increasing siltation as a result of sediment deposition. This poses a threat to drinking water supplies, flood defences and flora and fauna in the downstream reaches and also compromises hydroelectric power generation systems. An efficient and sustainable sediment management regime is therefore urgently needed....
