Mining companies are realising market expectations on them to achieve improved ESG with pressures to decarbonise from stakeholders, governments, regulators, customers and even employees increasing. The benefits of digitisation in mining are critical to meeting these environmental and social goals.
Partners in Performance experts, Keith Russell, Global Leader of Energy Transition, and Eric Powell, Head of Energy Transition for North America, believe adopting digitisation is necessary for meeting these demands, increasing efficiency, and improving grid management.
The benefits of digitisation go far beyond this, offering improvements in asset management, energy reduction, fleet management and more. Further, they argue digitisation is the best way to navigate various reporting schemes to meet targets. While global mining companies are aware of the need for improved digitisation, not every mining company has come to the same realisation.
