Hexagon’s Mining division has received the EcoVadis Gold Sustainability Rating, putting the global leader in mining technology for planning, operations, and safety in the top third percentile of those assessed. The Sustainability Scorecard that EcoVadis uses recognizes performance across 21 indicators in four themes: environment, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. The Mining division was assessed under the “manufacturers of computers and peripheral equipment” category, scoring well above industry standards across all areas.
The division provided evidence of its policies, processes, and progress against key ESG metrics. “Mining has always focused not only on driving sustainable change via our solutions but also through our actions. We are thrilled to have our efforts acknowledged and will continue to move initiatives forward for our business, the industry, and the planet,” said Louise Daw, Senior Director, ESG.
The Gold sustainability rating demonstrates to customers, employees, and the communities its continued commitment, with top priorities including increasing the number of women in management positions, working towards net-zero emissions in their operations, and working with suppliers to continue to augment the mining industry’s contribution to overall sustainability objectives.
Hexagon’s initiatives are aligned with the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals, the Responsible Business Alliance, and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), showing a multi-faceted approach and commitment to sustainability.
Additionally, Hexagon supports customers in their sustainability efforts through successful implementation of innovative life of mine solutions from the mine’s planning stages to operational emissions reductions and beyond.
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.
