How mining companies achieve sustainable operations via mining optimisation with Whittle Consulting

 

As the leading mining consultants, Whittle Consulting has identified the top 15 Objectives and Outcomes that drive our clients to implement mining optimisation generally, and Whittle Integrated Strategic Mine Planning, in particular. One of these objectives is to achieve sustainable mining operations. Let’s explore this objective in detail.

6. Achieve sustainable operations
Objectives:
  • Local community relationships
  • Employee wellbeing/labour relations
  • Government relations
  • Environmental protections

Outcomes

Shareholders are not the only stakeholders we need to consider when running a sustainable mining business. Local communities, employees, governments and environmentalists have much higher expectations and far more power than in the past. With higher visibility of our actions, the mining industry needs to act with a sense of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Mines are businesses who must work to improve overall sustainability, enhance mine valuation and to create value for all our stakeholders, who must be regarded as partners.

Not all stakeholder values are monetary. Whittle Integrated Strategic Mine Planning aims to find the balance between the financial value of mine valuation and other stakeholder values, by employing the Five Capitals Framework. If mine optimisation, conducted by mining consultants, Whittle Consulting, is successful, we will achieve the ultimate goal of an “Enduring Licence to Operate.”
