The mining industry is one of Australia’s most important sectors bringing investment opportunities, jobs, taxes and wealth to the Australian economy. Göran Fredrik Göransson founded the Swedish global engineering company Sandvik in Sweden in 1862; today it specialises in mining and rock excavation, metal-cutting and materials technology. Being a major actor in one of Australia’s key industries comes with a lot of responsibility in terms of sustainability. Pictured below is Figge Boksjö, Chairman of SACC Perth, Philippa Purdy, Store Manager at H&M Perth and Stuart Evans, Head of Environment, Health and Safety at Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology, at SACC Perth’s Conscious Business event held on May 16.
