Akobo Minerals nominated for major ESG award for second successive year
Akobo Minerals has announced that it has been nominated for the 2022 Environment, Sustainability and Governance (ESG) Explorer and Developer of the Year by Mines and Money. The successful company will be announced at the Mines and Money London conference – Europe’s leading mining investment event – taking place 29th November to 1st December. This is the second year in a row that Akobo has been nominated for this award, an impressive achievement for this young company as it works towards gold production in early 2023.
Jørgen Evjen, CEO of Akobo Minerals, said: “We are delighted that, once again, we have been recognized for our ESG efforts with our nomination by such an industry-respected organization. We understand that to be a successful company, ESG will always be at the heart of our activities at a community, country and global level and we are honoured that Mines and Money has identified our program as meeting the highest standards in the mining industry.”
The 2022 Mines & Money London conference and exhibition will have an increased focus on ESG and sustainability issues. As ESG moves from strategy to implementation, the event will look at key issues such as ESG metrics, sustainable development goals (SDPs) and better community engagement.
Akobo minerals is focused on delivering sustainable value for its employees, stakeholders and host communities, both now and into the future. The company believes that the protection of the health and wellbeing of staff employees, acting as a custodian of the local environment and being an advocate for sustainable economic empowerment in the Ethiopian host communities are both the right things to do and are a fundamental business imperative.
Akobo Minerals will be exhibiting at the Mines and Money Conference and Exhibition. Join the company on stand E01 to hear more about its activities as it gears up for commencing its Ethiopian gold production in early 2023.
