In conjunction with CIM Magazine, Stantec is proud to sponsor a discussion among mining operations senior leaders about steps they are currently taking to move toward a NetZero future.

As the world moves into the energy transition and greater emphasis is placed on sustainability across industries, the mining industry is no exception. In this webinar, hosts Jon Treen and Ryan Bergen will talk with producers and developers to understand what their organizations are doing with respect to these changes.  We will explore ways their companies are working to meet greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions targets from both energy consumption and energy production vantage points.

This session will be of interest to senior executives, facility managers, engineers, corporate risk managers, sustainability and resilience officers.
