Sustainable mining practices and how it is fundamental to providing conditions for the energy transition and facing the global climate crisis were discussed this Thursday (30) at the Latin American Mining Meeting (ELAMI), in Panama. The CEO of the Brazilian Institute of Mining (IBRAM), Raul Jungmann, was one of the speakers at the event and announced that the next edition of the event will take place in Brazil in 2024. The president of IBRAM spoke about the importance of countries with mining activity having strong and active regulatory agencies. He also stated that the transparent disclosure of mineral sector metrics in favor of decarbonization and the transition to clean energies is essential. Jungmann also said that climate issues are at the center of concerns around the world. “We have until 2030 to cut emissions and limit global warming to 1.5 degrees. It is necessary to recognize all the progress of industries, including mining. But more needs to be done,” he said. During the panel, he invited everyone to participate in the upcoming events that IBRAM will organize this year. “To involve industry, society and other stakeholders to debate the Amazon, we will promote, in August, the International Conference on the Amazon and New Economies. It will bring about an enriching exchange of ideas about economic alternatives for the Amazon region and its future,” he said. Raul Jungmann also recalled that, in November, the Institute will hold the Seminar on Strategic Minerals. “We believe that the Brazilian path is to increase the supply of strategic minerals to provide technological innovations aimed at the energy transition”, he said. At the end of his speech, the president of IBRAM spoke about the next edition of ELAMI, in Brazil. “It will be a pleasure to host such an important assembly in our country,” he said. Also participating in the panel were Alejandra Cardona, executive director of the Argentine Chamber of Mining Entrepreneurs, Juan Camilo Nariño, president of the Colombian Mining Association, Maria Eulalia Silva, president of the Ecuadorian Mining Chamber, Valery Zurita, executive director of the Resources Association Natural Resources, Mines and Quarries (GRENAT), Zorel Morales, executive director of the Chamber of Mining of Panama (CAMIPA) and Nicolas Maennling, director of the Regional Cooperation Program for the Sustainable Management of Mineral Resources in the Andean Region. All of them were emphatic in saying that the industries in their countries are walking with a common purpose of developing new technologies in their operations to advance with respect for the environment and communities. In its third edition, ELAMI sought to generate a regional dialogue on the role and importance of Latin America in the supply of critical minerals for the energy transition process.Read more
