Join us for the annual address to B.C.’s business community by Mining Association of British Columbia President and CEO Michael Goehring.
British Columbia’s mines are producing the minerals and metals required for the global transition to a low-carbon future, and to meet the commitments of the Paris Agreement. Importantly, B.C. mines create fewer greenhouse gas emissions than our competitors, while simultaneously creating significant jobs and revenues for all levels of government.
B.C. mines are committed to continuous improvement and investing in further decarbonization. Michael will speak about some of the new and emerging technologies being implemented at B.C. mines, and the strong ESG credentials of British Columbia’s mining sector.
