Leading industry companies and a broad array of industry leaders made their way to the African continent's largest mining convention in February. The Mining Indaba, as it's called, is an annual Mining Conference held in Cape Town, South Africa that attracts brokers and lenders, explorers and miners, politicians and policy makers from throughout the world to get the latest updates on mineral exploration and mining in Africa. While Pula is the only American exploration company operating in Tanzania, the American presence at this year's Indaba was impressive by any measure.
Epiroc becomes the first company in the mining industry to sign a delivery agreement with Swedish steelmaker SSAB for SSAB Zero™ – a fossil carbon emission-free recycled steel produced using fossil-free energy sources. The steel will be used in Epiroc’s battery-electric range of underground mine trucks and loaders, set to be introduced as soon as Q3 2023.

Andreas Backs is the new Director of Global Sustainability at the BEUMER Group. In this role, he is responsible for the development and implementation of the Group’s global sustainability strategy. His responsibilities include formulating a vision and goals, evaluating key issues and developing a roadmap that measures and improves performance in this area. He is also responsible for communicating with stakeholders and training of employees.
Sustainability learned from scratch
Backs joined the BEUMER Group in September 2022. Prior to that, he worked for almost two years at an international management consultancy, among other posts as a sustainability expert. He was employed by the TÜV Nord Group for just over four years: first as a project manager, then as a product manager for sustainability. Finally, he led the sustainability report audit program. Andreas Backs completed his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in environmental science and technology at the Technical University of Berlin.
“Global sustainability offers a special opportunity for the BEUMER Group,” says Andreas Backs. “That’s because we supply our products to industries and markets that are not considered sustainable.” He is also attracted by the opportunity to contribute to greater sustainability and solve global problems. The new Director of Global Sustainability takes on the role of an intermediary, as he says. “With our customers, I would like to evaluate our performance in key sustainability topics and improve it in the long term.” The aim is to create added value not only for users but also for the company’s own employees. Only with attractive and inviting workplaces can sustainable solutions for intralogistics be developed.
