“Sustainable Development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Engaging with the concept of sustainable development also has significant scope to more directly benefit mining companies themselves, with positive outcomes including more reliable long-term business planning, increased attractiveness to financing partners and improved relationships with host and home country governments.
M&SD’s founders, Nelida Ancora and Felix Pole, each have decades of experience in senior positions in their respective fields of development and mining. Using these different, yet complementary, backgrounds, we are excellently positioned to help companies incorporate social and environmental sustainability into their business strategies, policies and legal frameworks. We assist companies in transforming their corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities into corporate strategies based on national and international public-private partnerships, aligning CSR programmes to the achievement of the SDGs and transforming ideas into sustainable business activities
