THE VOICE OF THE CANADIAN

MINING INDUSTRY SINCE 1935

COI Panel Statement (2020)

The 2020 Mining Association of Canada (MAC) Community of Interest (COI) Advisory Panel meetings took place as the context of COVID-19 evolved from being initially detected early in the year to rapidly spreading around the World. Over the March and October meeting periods, there were discussions amongst the COI Panel members and MAC on topics that included the near and long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the impact of climate change on both the mining and Indigenous communities.

The March meeting included expert panelists who highlighted the role that the Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI) play in setting guidelines for institutional investors, where shareholders hold boards of directors and management teams accountable for setting targets and achieving results (i.e. reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to meet the 2030 and 2050 Paris Agreement targets). The October meeting included expert panelists from the mining industry and several levels of government, who discussed their responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures put in place to protect the mining workforce and nearby communities.
