SACC Perth WA 16 October – Implications for the mining industry when we “go green”

October 16, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

“Implications for the mining industry when we “go green” – Inspiring speech by Prof Göran Roos”

Wednesday 16 October 2019, 5.30pm-8.00pm, at Ernest & Young, Perth CBD

Prof Göran Roos will share for the first time a detailed account of his research around the “implications for the mining industry of moving to a low resource footprint value-creating paradigm”. Every 40-60 years there is a paradigm shift in how value is created in society. Each paradigm transitions through the same phases and usually the Paradigms overlap – which is why some firms or economies “miss the boat” – especially those that were successful in the previous paradigm.

The future low resource paradigm is rapidly becoming a new requirement and intentional decisions need to be made by organizations and governments around the world on which journey to take. The move towards a low resource footprint value-creating paradigm should increase not decrease profitability for the business and prosperity for the economy. In addition, Göran Roos believes that the transition will imply that we will be moving from a petroleum based economy to a metals based economy that will create a huge demand for new critical raw materials such as Dysprosium, Neodymium, Tellurium, Gallium, Indium and Lithium and so forth, many with strong supply limitations. To cater for this demand, new investments, new innovations, and technologies, as well as the implementation of new circular economy recycling will be key success factors in order to transition successfully as individuals, organizations, and societies.
