ESG Assessments for Geological Competent Person’s Reporting
Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) factors can influence the prospects of economically extracting solid minerals, oil and gas. The 2017 SAMESG Guidelines aim to assist Competent Persons in knowing which ESG aspects to report on and at what level of detail.
Our team of Environmental, Social and Legal technical specialists have demonstrated competence in assessing and reporting on ESG issues in the mining and resource sectors in Sub-Saharan Africa.
