Renewable Energy and Mining

Hello Everyone -I'm developing investor and media outreach for mining firms which use renewable energy, a new trend. Despite record low oil prices, clean energy is increasingly viewed as more reliable given the costs and cumbersome nature of trucked in diesel.Challenges persist, namely financing models and untested battery storage - imperative at projects where power outages can have serious safety and operational implications. Still the long-term outlook is positive.    Given the…See More

About My Work
Introducing mining companies with outperforming CSR to sustainability-focused investors worldwide - including social impact entrepreneurs, philanthropists, ethical funds and other financial institutions. While mining and extractive sector operations have massive footprints around the globe, moreover, they also have potential to be catalysts for change.

Only now are investors trending toward sustainability in risk mitigation terms: Lose a social license to operate, that is, and lose everything. With billions addressing climate change and development needs in the global south, meanwhile, few industries are better poised to advance such positive transformations writ-large. In 2013, for instance, more than a dozen top mining CEOs gathered for a quiet "day of reflection" at the Vatican.

It was no coincidence. Indeed, when it comes to investing in sustainability, there are few better bets than the global mining industry. By exposing miners and other extractive businesses to this emerging investment class with a social conscience, my specialty capacities further include strategic outreach across media platforms, multi-stakeholder engagement and technical advisory services.
Areas of interest
gold, diamonds, oil and natural gas, csr, governance and anti-corruption, investing, geology, environment, social accountability, human rights, contract and licensing, monitoring revenue collection, redistribution and sustainable development
