Will mining ever be sustainable? How do we deal with the sins of the past and move forward in a responsible way?

We explore this in today’s episode with Rohitesh Dhawan, President and CEO of the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM). ICMM brings together 26 of the world's largest mining and metals companies to work collectively on issues of sustainable development.  

We talked to Rohitesh about the work he’s doing at ICMM and the commitments the council is making. We get into how mining and the circular economy intersect, misconceptions about the mining industry, and the increased demand for metals that the sustainability sector creates.
