Mining 2030 Receives US$11 Trillion Investor Backing

The Global Investor Commission on Mining 2030 has amassed support from 82 investors collectively managing US$11 trillion in assets as it names new members of its multi-stakeholder Commission. The investor-led initiative aims to promote a socially and environmentally responsible mining sector by 2030, developing guidance and best practice. Investors supporting the initiative include CalSTRS, Scottish Widows and the Australian Council for Superannuation Investors. Members of the Commission span local communities, intergovernmental organisations, the mining industry, law, unions, civil society, and academia. Adam Matthews, Chair of the Global Investor Commission on Mining 2030 and Chief Responsible Investment Officer of the Church of England Pensions Board, said: “The Mining 2030 Commission presents a unique opportunity to step back and consider how investors value, steward and invest for the long-term in a sector whose time horizons are multi-decadal and often at odds with short term investment pressure. Twinned with this will be a consideration of the role of investors in supporting the alignment and consolidation of best practice standards on the key issues that challenge the sector as well as the role of addressing existing and future conflict that can be caused or exacerbated by extraction.”
